INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Two of Indiana’s largest business groups are praising proposed changes to the state’s new religious objections law.

Indiana Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kevin Brinegar said Thursday that Indiana “has suffered tremendously” in the past week amid an uproar over suggestions that the new law could allow discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Brinegar says the proposed changes 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 called the proposed changes “a major step in the right direction in efforts to protect the rights of all Hoosiers.”

But he says the state still has “much to do to strengthen non-discrimination policies across the state.”
