Rep. Cook discusses support for RFRA and clarification

Posted by: Jay Wood  | Thursday, April 2, 2015

STATEHOUSE- “Senate Enrolled Act 101, more commonly referred to as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act or simply RFRA, was never intended to be a means of discrimination and exclusion; rather, it was meant to be a means of inclusion for the religious convictions of all Hoosiers.

“Unfortunately, the letter of the law was subject to mischaracterizations by opponents of the measure, as well as some of the supporters of the measure. The misperceptions surrounding RFRA led me to support Senate Bill 50, which makes crystal clear that the religious freedom law cannot be used as a license to discriminate.”
