The bill bans “any elected or appointed officer, employee, or agent of the state” from closing a “building or grounds where religious activities are conducted.”

Fox News reports that Texas state Rep. Scott Sanford, who filed the bill, said “churches provide essential spiritual, mental and physical support in a time of crisis.”

“Closing churches not only eliminated these critical ministries and services, but it violated their religious freedom, guaranteed by our laws and Constitution,” he added.
