No Accord Yet on Clarifying Indiana Religious Objection Law

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma says lawmakers haven't yet been reached agreement on a proposal for clarifying the state's new religious objections law as Gov. Mike Pence wants.
 
The Republican speaker says he shares Pence's goal of passing that legislation this week, but that talks were continuing Tuesday afternoon on how to specify that the law doesn't allow discrimination against gays and lesbians.
 
Democratic lawmakers say such action would be a patchwork response and continue to maintain that a full repeal of the law is needed.
 
House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath says a patchwork change to the law won't satisfy concerns that have been raised from business executives and others around the country.
