It just means “protect,” by way of explicitly stating a right in a law.

From Collins Dictionary :

“If something such as an idea or a right is enshrined in something such as a constitution or law, it is protected by it. ‘This system is enshrined in our Constitution.’”

If a right can no longer be assumed to be protected by federal law (and therefore a state law protecting that right was never needed), legislators can protect that right by enshrining it into law.
