BREAKING: #SaveChickfilA Bill Passes Out of Committee

Last night, the Texas House State Affairs Committee called a formal meeting and passed HB 3172, the First Amendment Defense Act also known as the #SaveChickfilA bill. The vote out of committee was 9-2 with the bill receiving bi-partisan support.  The bill still needs to be addressed by the House Calendars Committee before going to the full House floor, and the Texas Senate.

Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values said: “We are proud to see the State Affairs Committee heed the call of thousands of Texans to protect religious liberty and Save Chick-fil-A. We look forward to the legislature satisfying the hunger of Texans for religious freedom by swiftly passing HB 3172.”

As mentioned, the battle isn’t over. We still need you to urge your Texas House Member to coauthor HB 3172, as of this writing we have 64 coauthors, which is short of our goal of 76. Call your member now at
