WASHINGTON (Friday, Oct. 6, 2017) — U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) issued the below statement today following the Trump administration’s decision to provide religious exemptions to the Obama-era mandate that required all employer-provided health insurance policies to cover contraception.

"President Trump delivered a significant victory for religious freedom today,” Messer said.  “The federal government should not be able to force family-run businesses to choose between following their faith and complying with a mandate that is inconsistent with their religious beliefs.  I, along with most Hoosiers, applaud the Trump administration for taking a strong stand to protect every American's First Amendment rights.”
