Ind. Gov't. - "Religious freedom" bill moves out of Senate committee

Updating this ILB post from Feb. 10th on the 5-hour committee hearing on the "religious freedom" bills, Tom Davies of the AP reports this afternoon:

Republicans on an Indiana Senate committee quickly advanced a proposed religious freedom law before any of the Democratic members arrived to vote.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved sending the bill to the full Senate in a vote soon after Wednesday's 8:30 a.m. meeting time.

Democratic Sen. John Broden of South Bend says he would've voted against the bill, but doesn't believe any rules were broken by the committee's action.

That would be SB 101, which will now be eligible for 2nd reading tomorrow.
