Shelby Responds to Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Ruling

WASHINGTON, DC, Monday, June 30, 2014 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case: 

"I am glad to see that the Supreme Court rightfully recognized that religious liberties don't end when a family owns a business. Today’s decision is a victory for the American people‎ and a rebuke of Obamacare's attempt to undermine our constitutionally guaranteed right to religious freedom. I remain committed to protecting the First Amendment and will continue to advocate for the full repeal of this intrusive health care law.”
