INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 28, 2015) — After a day filled with protests and the announcement Angie’s List is halting its expansion plans, Gov. Mike Pence told the Indianapolis Star Saturday he will support legislation to “clarify” the Religious Freedom Restoration Act he signed into law Thursday.

“I support religious liberty, and I support this law,” Pence said in an exclusive interview with The Star, our newsgathering partner. “But we are in discussions with legislative leaders this weekend to see if there’s a way to clarify the intent of the law.”

Pence didn’t provide details on the exact language, but said he expects the legislation to be introduced into the General Assembly this coming week.

Asked if that legislation might include making gay and lesbian Hoosiers a protected legal class, Pence said, “That’s not on my agenda.”
