LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Gov. Pete Ricketts held a news conference Wednesday afternoon to commemorate Religious Freedom Week in Nebraska.

Christian, Hindu, and Jewish religious leaders — from Chabad Nebraska, Hindu Temple Omaha, Nebraska Catholic Conference, Nebraska Family Alliance, and Ratio Christi — joined Ricketts as the state highlights “the right to religious freedom and the social benefits that come from the free exercise of religion.”

During his comments at the news conference, Ricketts also made several references to Monday’s ruling on a Texas case that allows for coaches to pray at school events.
