Indiana's religious objections law remains unchanged

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana's religious objections law is not going anywhere.

A bill that would have replaced the law was denied by the state Senate. The replacement would have included tougher protections for the rights of worship, speech and bearing arms.

This comes as Republican lawmakers are under pressure to adopt LGBT civil rights protections after an uproar over the religious objections law.

Critics said the law would allow discrimination against gay people.

Tourism officials say Indiana may have lost as much as $60 million in revenue after a dozen conventions picked cities other than Indianapolis amid the uproar over the state's controversial religious objections law.
