INDIANAPOLIS -- Over 150 businesses across Indiana agree legal equality is crucial to the state's economic success. 

A business coalition called Indiana Competes launched Wednesday aims to improve LGBT Civil Rights in the heartland. 

The coalition is in support of Indiana lawmakers amending Indiana's civil rights code during the next session to prohibit discrimination of any kind.
