The Supreme Court WON’T hear a case on whether states can exclude religious buildings from funding for historic preservation

The justices declined Monday to hear a 2002 case in which the Freedom From Religion Foundation sued Morris County, New Jersey after officials created a historic preservation program and made religious institutions eligible for grants.

New Jersey’s Supreme Court ruled the state’s constitution barred the grants to religious institutions. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote that the justices should address the issue but not until more case law develops following a 2017 Supreme Court decision that a Missouri church couldn’t be excluded from its state’s playground resurfacing program solely because it is a religious institution.
