INDIANAPOLIS – Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) released the following statement concerning Governor Mike Pence’s desire to clarify legislative intent of Senate Bill 101.

“I’m grateful the governor has recognized a need to reevaluate his decision to sign Senate Bill 101.

“He’s come to realize what business leaders and everyday Hoosiers from across our state knew all along: this divisive act has no place in Indiana.

“Legislative ‘tweaks’ are not enough.

“To restore trust and show Hoosiers and Americans that all are welcome here, this hateful law has to go.

“Only a full repeal will serve that aim.

“Democrats will vigorously pursue all legislative options to that end.

“Only then can we work to restore the credibility that the governor and republican allies have so flagrantly tarnished.”
