The new law prevents local governments from retaliating against a person or business for their membership or donations to religious organizations.
The bill was pushed through the Texas legislature in part due to San Antonio City Council excluding Chick-fil-A from a concession contract at the San Antonio airport because of the “religious beliefs associated with that company and its owners”.
In a tweet, Gov. Abbott said, "Today I signed the @ChickfilA law in Texas. And, had a great lunch. No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization. Texas protects religious liberty.”
