Lankford Pleased with Hobby Lobby Injunction Decision

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Oklahoma City, OK

Representative James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement after Judge Joe Heaton of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma issued a preliminary injunction today to Hobby Lobby while their religious liberty case proceeds through the legal system:

"I am pleased Judge Heaton decided to shield Oklahoma's Hobby Lobby from the exorbitant costs the President's healthcare law would levy on their family-owned business. The temporary injunction until October 1 will protect Hobby Lobby from $1.3 million per day in federal fines. With this injunction Hobby Lobby will not face that astronomical fine until the court finally decides whether its owners will be required--against their Christian beliefs--to supply free abortifacient drugs to their employees in compliance with the President's healthcare law. I am grateful that Hobby Lobby will not be unfairly penalized while their original case awaits a decision. I pray the court will provide final clarity and rule on this case before the October 1 injunction deadline."
