Indiana Lawmakers Add Language to New Religious Freedom Bill

Republican lawmakers in Indiana are adding language to a new controversial religious freedom bill.

The move comes after widespread criticism over the law.

It would give businesses the right to deny service to someone over a person’s religious beliefs.

House Speaker Brian Bosma said the law was meant to promote a message of inclusion for those to express their beliefs freely.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the law last week.

He defended it during a television appearance Sunday, but would not say if the bill discriminates.
