Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) signed a bill Tuesday that will allow religious student groups at public universities to restrict membership to those who share their beliefs.

Although it took nearly two years of legislative wrangling before the state House of Representatives passed SB 175 last week, The Hutchinson News reports that Brownback was more decisive, praising the bill for protecting the “bedrock American principle” of religious freedom as he signed it.
