San Antonio Rejects Revote On Airport Chick-Fil-A

USA Today reports:

Chick-fil-A has not been cleared for takeoff at the San Antonio International Airport. Nearly a month after the San Antonio City Council voted to ban the fast-food chain from opening a location in the airport, the council narrowly rejected a proposal to reconsider the March 21 decision, Councilman Greg Brockhouse said Thursday.

At the March meeting, council members amended plans for a concessions agreement for new restaurants and businesses in Terminal A of the Texas airport to exclude the chicken restaurant, with some citing concerns with its record on LGBTQ issues.

Brockhouse, who is running for mayor, said in a statement that he asked the council for a revote and to debate the issue, which he says has sent a message that the city doesn’t “respect religious freedom” and has hurt the city’s reputation.
