Pence preps to sign new ‘religious freedom’ bill

Indiana lawmakers fixed its so called Religious Freedom Restoration Act Thursday in Indianapolis. Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence signed SB 50 after an entire day of debate. The fix hopes to lessen the possibility of large protest during this weekend’s NCAA men’s Final Four in Indy. What does the law do and does it go far enough? And will it start to repair Indiana’s reputation and economy since so many voice loud objections that the law could be used to discriminate against gay people. Joining us is WBEZ’s Michael Puente.
