Krishnakumar on Statutory Interpretation Questions from the Hobby Lobby Argument

Professor Anita Krishnakumar responded to Will Baude’s Washington Post piece on whether legislation passed by unanimous vote should be invalidated or narrowly construed in a post on Rick Hasen’s electionlawblog.   The issue arose out of the Hobby Lobby case that was argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday.  Professor Krisknakumar notes,  “Different legislators vote for (or against) a statute for many different reasons, and their final vote tells us nothing about those reasons.”  See the full post here.
