INDIANAPOLIS — Just hours after Indiana Gov. Mike Pence asked for supplementary legislation to clarify the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Senate leaders say they have a “potential vehicle” to create the additional bill.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, said Senate Bill 50 could eventually contain the legislation the governor is asking for to answer some of the questions regarding the controversial RFRA.
“If we can arrive at language that would work — we’re not there yet — that would be a vehicle,” Long said. “And the reason we created one is simply to be prepared, because we have a sense that we need to move quickly out here and be pretty nimble.”
The governor asked to see the additional legislation on his desk sometime this week.
