On March 26, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill passed in the Indiana House just days before.
This bill has stirred up a ton of controversy due to the wording in it. Part of it stated, “A governmental entity may not substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion, even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability,” specifically in section 8 provision (b) of the bill.
