That marks the first time the high court has declared that businesses can hold religious views under federal law.
 
     The justices' 5-4 decision means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under the health insurance plans of objecting companies, such as Hobby Lobby.

S.E.I.U: Supreme Court union decision to have no impact in Montana

The Supreme Court dealt a blow to public sector unions today, ruling that thousands of home health care workers in Illinois cannot be required to pay fees that help cover a union's costs of collective bargaining.

According to one regional union rep, the decision is expected to have no impact here in Montana.

The debaters are Binta Niambi Brown, David D. Burstein, W. Keith Campbell, and Jessica Grose.
