CEOs, NCAA "Deeply Concerned" Over New Indiana Law

Just days before the highly anticipated Final Four men's basketball tournament tips off in the NCAA's home city of Indianapolis, the organization's president told NBC News that he is "deeply concerned" over Indiana's controversial new "religious freedom" law, which critics say could be used to justify anti-gay discrimination. "Our core values are built around notions of diversity and inclusion," Mark Emmert said. "And anything that might create an environment within which we can't maximize those values is something that we take very, very seriously." The CEOs of nine major Indiana-based companies — including pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Co. and Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield — wrote a letter to Pence and other state leaders, saying they were concerned for "the reputation of our state" and their employees. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy banned state-sponsored travel to Indiana over the legislation, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel tried wooing Indiana businesses to his city. Read »

Indiana Gov. Defends Religious Freedom Law

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Sunday continued to try to counteract the deluge of criticism against a controversial law aimed at protecting people's religious freedoms, saying it was not intended to make it easier for them to discriminate against same-sex couples, NBC News reported. "There's been shameless rhetoric about my state and about this law and its intention all over the Internet," Pence said on ABC's "This Week." "We are determined to make it clear that what Indiana has done here is strengthen the foundation and the constitutional First Amendment religious rights of our people." The new measure prohibits legislation that "substantially burdens" a person's ability to follow his or her religious beliefs. Opponents argue the law could give legal cover to businesses that refuse service to members of the LGBT community. Read »
