Nine of Indiana's largest employers sent a letter to state GOP leaders Monday asking for immediate action on the controversial religious freedom law.
The CEOs of Emmis Communications, Anthem, Cummins, Eli Lilly & Co., Dow AgroSciences, Angie's List, Indiana University Health, Roche Diagnostics and Salesforce sent the joint letter to Gov. Mike Pence, House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro-Tem David Long on Monday afternoon.
Angie's List and Salesforce have already announced plans to reduce their investment in Indiana over the law.
The letter says the companies are "deeply concerned" about the impact the law is having on their employees and the reputation of the state.
"All of our companies seek to promote fair, diverse and inclusive workplaces," the letter reads. "Our employees must not feel unwelcome in the place where they work and live."
The letter ends by asking lawmakers to immediately enact new legislation that "makes it clear that neither the Religious Freedom Restoration Act nor any other Indiana law can be used to justify discrimination based upon sexual orientation or gender identity."
