Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma says it is “still our hope” to have the issue over clarifying language in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act “completely resolved” tomorrow. Bosma tells our partners at WTHR-TV in Indianapolis the focus of the talks continues to be a resolution outlining that the law cannot be used to deny service to anyone. On Tuesday, Governor Mike Pence said he wanted to see legislation on his desk by the end of the week clarifying the language. He says, while he still stands by the act, there has been damage done to the perception of Indiana.
Earlier today, Republican Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said he wanted to see changes to a similar bill in that state before he would sign it. He says his intent is for the state bill to mirror a federal religious freedom law passed in 1993.
