Under fire from the Left for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act he signed last week, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence took the opportunity today to “clarify” the law and promise a legislative fix that would include explicit non-discrimination language.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson will have the chance to get it right the first time when the Arkansas legislature sends him its own version of a religious freedom bill for his signature. Of course, convincing the public that Arkansas’ legislation is not a license for businesses to discriminate will be an uphill battle; behold:
Walmart, based in Arkansas, has already come out with a statement urging Hutchinson to veto the legislation. Does Walmart have the political and economic muscle to scuttle the bill?
