INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Technology company leaders have written to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence asking him not to sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The Indianapolis Star reports (https://indy.st/1Gs1PeN ) the presidents and CEOs say in the letter that the legislation will make the state “a less appealing place to live and work.” They call it “backward-looking” and say it will “adversely impact” their ability to recruit and retain workers.

Pence is expected to sign the legislation Thursday. Those in opposition say the legislation could allow discrimination against gay people.

Those signing the letter include: Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com; Jon Gilman, CEO of Clear Software; Scott McCorkle, CEO of Salesforce Marketing Cloud; John McDonald, CEO of CloudOne; Bill Johnson, CEO of Salesvue; Jenny Vance, president of LeadJen and Max Yoder, CEO of Lesson.ly.
