Gov. Otter applauds Hobby Lobby contraceptive ruling

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- Gov. Butch Otter on Monday said he appreciates the Supreme Court's decision which allows employers with religious objections to opt out of providing contraception.

"As Governor of one of the states weighing in on this case, I'm encouraged to see religious liberty trumping Obamacare's headlong rush to impose a contraceptive mandate on the American people," Otter said.

"Today's ruling confirms once again that President Obama's policies - when left unchecked - are eroding our constitutional rights. I remain committed to challenging that misguided course at every opportunity, and I'm grateful to courageous individuals and employers willing to stand up and be counted."
