Do you remember hearing about the Supreme Court rulings for Hobby Lobby (2014) and Little Sisters of the Poor (2016) and their exemption from the Obamacare mandate to provide contraceptives?

Provisions in the long-established Religious Freedom Protective Act (RFRA) made those rulings possible.

Thomas Jipping, senior legal fellow with the Heritage Foundation, says new measures in the U.S. House and Senate seek to do away with religious exemptions that are upheld in the RFRA.
