NM Stat § 28-22-5 (1996 through 1st Sess 50th Legis) What's This?

28-22-5. Construction of act.

Nothing in the New Mexico Religious Freedom Restoration Act [28-22-1 to 28-22-5 NMSA 1978] authorizes a government agency to burden a person's free exercise of religion. The protection of the free exercise of religion granted in that act is in addition to the protections granted by federal law and the state and federal constitutions. The New Mexico Religious Freedom Restoration Act does not affect the grant of benefits or tax exemptions to religious organizations nor does it impair any other exemptions granted by law.
