INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A Republican proposal aimed at limiting how businesses could potentially invoke Indiana’s new religious objections law doesn’t satisfy Democratic legislators who want a full repeal of the law.

House Speaker Brian Bosma said Monday that House Republicans agreed that the law should not be used to support the denial of goods, facilities or services to any member of the public.

Bosma says he doesn’t believe a full repeal of the law is a realistic goal. Republican Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard also called Monday for the law’s repeal.

House Democratic leader Scott Pelath (PEE’-lath) says the law is a national embarrassment and that Republican legislators are failing to face reality and admit the law is a mistake.
