Last week, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which goes into effect July 1. The law prevents the government from intruding on religious liberty without a compelling reason, the Indianapolis Star reported.
Since the law's passage, many have voiced concerns the it would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ customers in the name of religion.
Pence told the Indianapolis paper that discrimination isn't the goal, and he said Tuesday he plans to push the state legislature to update the law with a clarification.
