Statement on Court Ruling Blocking Cooper’s Restrictions for Worship Services

Senator Warren Daniel (R-Burke), co-chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement in response to the federal court order temporarily blocking Gov. Roy Cooper’s Executive Order restrictions for worship services:

“Today’s decision is a victory for the Constitutional guarantee to freedom of worship. Governor Cooper cannot treat retailers and ABC stores one way and houses of worship another. Nor can he allow one type of worship service to proceed while prohibiting another. Hopefully, this decision will put some guardrails on what has been unchecked executive power.”
