Indianapolis City-County Council to hear anti-RFRA resolution Monday

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis City-County Council will take up a resolution Monday opposing the state's new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The resolution, drafted by Council Vice President John Barth (D), states that RFRA is "not a true representation of our city as a welcoming and inclusive place" and is bad for local businesses.

It also encourages the Indiana State Legislature to amend the civil rights section of the Indiana Code to include sexual orientation or to specifically exempt locally enacted human rights ordinances from Senate Enrolled Act 101 (RFRA).

The resolution is co-sponsored by Democratic councilors Kip Tew, Maggie Lewis, Zach Adamson and Council President Maggie Lewis (D).

A meeting was scheduled for Monday at 7 p.m. at the City-County Building.
