‘Religious freedom’ petition submitted

Published 04/22/2011, The Jamestown Sun

Secretary of State Al Jaeger said the measure’s backers claim to have gathered about 30,000 signatures. They need at least 27,000 names. The proposed amendment says the government must have a compelling interest before it regulates religious practices. Any regulation must be done in the least-restrictive manner possible.
