McAuliffe vetoes ‘religious freedom’ bill to chagrin of conservatives
March 30, 2016
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) on Wednesday vetoed a Republican-backed bill that would have prohibited state agencies from punishing religious organizations that discriminate against same-sex couples.
The veto comes in the same week that similar legislation is drawing attention to Georgia, where Gov. Nathan Deal (R) rejected a “religious freedom” bill and North Carolina, where Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed a bill that blocks municipalities from expanding laws to protect lesbian, gay and transgender people.
