Arkansas Governor Says He Won't Sign 'Religious Freedom' Bill Until Changes Are Made

Arkansas governorArkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) said on Wednesday he would not yet sign a controversial religious freedom act into law, requesting that the state legislature make changes to the bill in the wake of criticism that the legislation could be used to facilitate discrimination against LGBT citizens and other groups.

Justice BreyerThe Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that Alabama should reconsider the use of race in redistricting, siding with black lawmakers and Democrats in the state in throwing out a lower court’s decision.
