Controversial 'Save Chick-fil-A' bill passes Texas House

AUSTIN, Texas (KTRK) -- The "Save Chick-fil-A" bill has passed the Texas House.

It all started when San Antonio's City Council blocked Chick-fil-A from opening a store at the airport because the fast food chain makes contributions to organizations that do not support the LGBT community.

'NO MOR CHIKIN': San Antonio City Council's 6-4 vote ousts fast food chain from airport over anti-LGBTQ donations.



Republican lawmakers responded with a measure that would ban local governments from taking "adverse action" against an individual or business based on affiliations or contributions to a religious organization.

Democrats say the bill invites discrimination.

The measure needs one more Senate vote before moving to Gov. Greg Abbott's desk.
