Supreme Court Rules 5-4 In Favor Of Hobby Lobby

June 30, 2014, 11:24 AM

Supreme Court Rules 5-4 In Favor Of Hobby Lobby
WASHINGTON -

U.S. Senator John Thune says he's pleased with a Supreme Court decision that says for-profit businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

The justices' 5-4 decision Monday says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

Thune, a South Dakota Republican, calls it "a victory for religious freedom."

Attorney General Marty Jackley says South Dakota joined 17 states in supporting the challenge to the Supreme Court. He says there's "a continued unease that the federal takeover of health care infringes upon our individual and state rights."

The Supreme Court ruling means the Obama administration must find a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.
