HB 1523 federal appeals hearing set for April



JACKSON – The fight over last year’s House Bill 1523 could kick into gear again as early as April.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans has tentatively scheduled oral arguments on the controversial “religious freedom” law for the week of April 3.

Gov. Phil Bryant is appealing a June federal court ruling that declared HB 1523 unconstitutional minutes before it would have become Mississippi law. The law singles out three “sincerely held” religious beliefs as worthy of protection: that marriage is between one man and one woman; that people should not have sex outside such marriages; and that a person’s gender is set at birth.
