WASHINGTON (AP) _ Reversing a Supreme Court decision he said threatened the nation's "first freedom," President Clinton signed a bill Tuesday making it harder for government to interfere with religious practices.

A broad coalition of civil liberties and religious groups, who foresaw autopsies forced on families and cities meddling in church construction, said the law is the most important for religious freedom since the adoption of the Bill of Rights.

"We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties - religious freedom," Clinton told supporters in a South Lawn ceremony.
