Texans voted on Tuesday to prohibit the Lone Star State from taking any action that would prohibit or limit religious services.
SJR 27, otherwise known as Proposition 3, is an amendment to the state’s constitution that bars “the State of Texas or a political subdivision from enacting, adopting, or issuing a statute, order, proclamation, decision, or rule that prohibits or limits religious services.”
Proposition 3 was one of the eight amendments proposed to Texas voters in their Nov. 2 Constitutional Amendment Election.
The proposition also says that the amendment “would apply to religious services, including those conducted in churches, congregations, and places of worship, in the state by a religious organization established to support and serve the propagation of a sincerely held religious belief.”
