Indiana’s religious freedom law that takes effect in July gives framework for courts to handle religious liberty cases and does not legalize discrimination, Gov. Mike Pence said.
He spoke about the law during an exclusive interview on FOX and Friends on Tuesday morning, March 31.
“I stand by this law, but I understand that the way some on the left and frankly some in the national media have mischaracterized this law over the last week might make it necessary for us to clarify the law through legislation,” he said. “There is no license to discriminate in this law.”

“…Indiana’s open for business,” Pence said later on in the interview. “You all have been to the Hoosier state. You know there are no kinder or hospitable people in America than here in Indiana.”
