Consideration of a controversial religious freedom bill was tabled in committee late Thursday in the state House after a non-discrimination amendment was adopted, leaving little hope the measure would see the floor for a full vote before the legislative session expires next week.

The legislative freeze came after Rep. Mike Jacobs introduced an amendment Thursday afternoon during a tense hours-long conference of the House Judiciary Committee that would have barred the bill from overriding local non-discrimination ordinances.

Supporters of the measure said the amendment, which passed on a vote of 9-8 in committee, would have neutered the bill.

The bill’s opponents, as it were, agreed with that assessment: the committee, led by RFRA supporters, voted to table the legislation after adoption of the Jacobs amendment, effectively shelving the bill as the session’s April 2 sunset approaches.
