Under current Oregon law, people and institutions of faith are substantially burdened by government to prove they have a legitimate claim to their religious practice(s), when that burden should--based on First Amendment "free exercise" guarantees--be placed on the shoulders of the state to prove they have a compelling governmental interest to limit or disallow the religious practice(s) in question, and using the least restrictive means possible when following through. This bill would put the burden of proof back on the state.
