This article explains that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) could prevent the expansion of Chicago, Illinois-based O'Hare International Airport if the city of Chicago loses in an action filed by Illinois towns Bensenville and Elk Grove, and the Saint John's United Church of Christ. The towns and the church oppose the relocation of a cemetery that lies in the direct path of a proposed O'Hare runway.
