NCAA expresses concern about new religious freedom act in Indiana

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is set to sign into law today a measure that critics say could lead to anti-gay discrimination. The law would allow businesses to deny service on the basis of religion. And the state is already starting to face potential economic consequences from that law. Organizers of a gaming convention held every year in Indianapolis are threatening to leave the state over the law. And Indianapolis is hosting the NCAA men’s final four in a little more than a week and in a statement to WBEZ, a spokesman says the organization is examining the bill but is committed to an inclusive environment where all individuals enjoy equal access. WBEZ’s Mike Puente talks more about the NCAA’s reaction and the potential economic impact of the bill. (Flickr/Thomas Hawk)
