Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder Says He'd Veto A Bill Like Indiana's

Amid a nationwide firestorm over so-called religious freedom bills, Michigan’s Republican governor is taking cover. Rick Snyder told the Detroit Free Press on Thursday that he would veto a bill like Indiana’s if it made its way through the state Legislature. The governor said, "Given all the events that are happening in Indiana, I thought it would be good to clarify my position. I would veto RFRA legislation in Michigan if it is a standalone piece of legislation.” Snyder further told the Free Press that he would not sign an RFRA bill until broader, separate anti-discrimination legislation passed as well — indicating that even an RFRA bill containing language that explicitly bars businesses from using it to defend discrimination against LGBT people would not suffice.
