On Saturday, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy rescinded a ban on state-funded travel to Indiana after Indiana Gov. Mike Pence amended the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act Thursday night.
“Unlike Connecticut – which has been a national leader in LGBTQ protections – this is the first time that Indiana has codified any protections for individuals based upon their sexual orientation or gender identity,” Malloy said in a Saturday press release. “While the law even in its amended version remains divisive, I believe it is a step in the right direction.”
