U.S. Sen. Moran issues statement following high court ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (Kan.) today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to restrict Americans’ religious freedom in the case of Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius:

“Since our nation’s earliest days, the U.S. Supreme Court has consistently affirmed our First Amendment right to exercise our religious beliefs freely,” Sen. Moran said. “Today’s Supreme Court decision rightly rejects the federal government’s intrusion into an individual’s religious liberty. This ruling protects religious practice beyond places of worship without harm to others. I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision.”

Sen. Moran was one of 15 Senators to co-sign an amicus brief in the case challenging the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate. The Supreme Court’s decision applies to closely-held corporations.
