Mike Pence Signs Revised Indiana 'Religious Freedom' Law

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) signed a revised version of a "religious freedom" law Thursday, hoping to quiet national criticism that the original law would have allowed businesses to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.
 "Over the past week this law has become a subject of great misunderstanding and controversy across our state and nation," said Pence in a statement Thursday evening. "However we got here, we are where we are, and it is important that our state take action to address the concerns that have been raised and move forward."
