Mark Mendenhall, who has eaten at Chick-Fil-A for 114 straight days, discusses the reasons that led to his choice in eating habits.

The city of San Antonio has spent at least $315,000 in legal fees after the city council voted to bar Chick-fil-A from opening a location in the San Antonio airport in March, according to calculations by KENS 5.

The legal fees encompass two lawsuits and a federal investigation, and other invoices are pending, according to KENS 5.

The San Antonio City Council voted to block the chain as an airport vendor due to the company's "legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior." The council also struck down a motion to reconsider the decision.

Texas - Republican - Gov - Greg - Abbott

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a "Save Chick-fil-A" bill in June that stemmed from the San Antonio kerfuffle.

"The bill as filed ensures religious beliefs are protected from discrimination. It's about the First Amendment and freedom of speech, freedom of religion — those uniquely American rights," bill author state Sen. Bryan Hughes said, according to the Dallas Morning News.
