Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) spoke to reporters about the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which he signed into law the previous week. He asked the state legislature to pass a clarification to the law that “makes it clear” that the law does not give businesses the right to deny services to anyone.
