Indy lawmakers move as ‘religious freedom’ bill gets increased scrutiny

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence says he wants lawmakers to hand him a bill with clarifying language saying the state’s controversial “religious freedom” law doesn’t allow businesses to discriminate. Lawmakers say the Gov. will have this by the end of the week, and they’ve found a way to expedite the process rather than go through the regular legislative hoops. Indiana Public Broadcasting Statehouse Bureau Chief Brandon Smith gives us the inside view on what he’s hearing from lawmakers and if they’re sticking to party lines with their next moves.(Flickr/ Elliott Plack)
