INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana business groups are divided over proposed changes to the state’s new religious objections law.

CEO Bill Oesterle (OH’-ster-lee) of consumer review service Angie’s List says the changes proposed Thursday are insufficient because most Indiana employers can still fire a person for being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

Angie’s List suspended a planned $40 million expansion in Indianapolis that would have created 1,000 new jobs.

Indiana Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kevin Brinegar says the proposals that would prohibit service providers from discriminating against gays and lesbians are “what businesses and individuals from around the state, country and world needed to hear.”

Indy Chamber President and CEO Michael Huber calls the proposed changes “a major step in the right direction in efforts to protect the rights of all Hoosiers.”
