Gov. Mike Pence signs 'religious freedom' bill

Indianapolis Star Reports:

Gov. Mike Pence was expected to sign controversial "religious freedom" legislation in a private ceremony just before 10 this morning.

Spokeswoman Kara Brooks said the event was closed to the press and the public. It was unclear who, if anyone, was attending the ceremony.

The measure could allow business owners to refuse services to same-sex couples and has set off a firestorm of controversy.

Pence has been under intense pressure from opponents since the Republican-controlled Indiana General Assembly approved the measure on Tuesday.

Asked why the ceremony would be private, Brooks said there was "no particular reason."

"Some (bill signings) are public; some are private," she said. "Don't read into it any more or less."
