House and Senate override veto on religious freedom bill

FRANKFORT, Ky (WYMT/Lexington Herald Leader) - Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly voted to overturn House Bill 279 veto tonight.

Governor Beshear said the religious freedom bill was too vaguely worded, and could spark costly lawsuits.

It is intended to protect the religious beliefs of Kentuckians from government intrusions.
