Added November 2, 2021:

This State or a political subdivision of this State may not enact, adopt, or issue a statute, order, proclamation, decision, or rule that prohibits or limits religious services, including religious services conducted in churches, congregations, and places of worship, in this State by a religious organization established to support and serve the propagation of a sincerely held religious belief.

Editor Comments

Sections 4 through 7 of Article I, including this new section, concern religion.

The broadly-worded section was adopted with a vote of 62 percent in favor.

It stops officials from using a disaster declaration to close places of worship.
