WASHINGTON— Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) issued the following statement in response to today's U.S. Supreme Court decision declaring that certain U.S. employers cannot be required by the federal government to pay to cover contraceptives for their employees:

"Religious freedom is a fundamental constitutional right and I am very pleased by the Supreme Court's decision to continue to protect that right.  The Obama Administration's attempt to force employers to pay for things which they may oppose on religious or moral grounds was unacceptable and I'm glad that we have some resolution on this matter," said Congressman Bishop.
