Governor Greg Abbott signs Chick-Fil-A bill


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – The “Save Chick-Fil-A” bill is now officially a law in Texas.

Though he signed the bill last month, Governor Greg Abbott held a public ceremony on Thursday to sign SB 1978.

He also had plenty of Chik-Fil-A sandwiches on hand, which he called “a great lunch.”

The law bans government officials from discriminating against companies for donating to religious organizations.

It comes after a move by the San Antonio City Council to ban the Christian family owned fast food chain from its airport over its support of groups with anti LGBT views.
