The owners of more than 20 polluted industrial sites in Indianapolis are hiding behind the legal protections of a state-run voluntary program to delay cleanup, Mayor Greg Ballard alleges in a letter to state regulators.
The governor said he's been in discussions with legislative leaders this weekend. He expects that a clarification bill will be introduced this coming week to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act he signed Thursday.
Angie's List CEO Bill Oesterle, a Republican who gave at least $150,000 to help elect Gov. Mike Pence, on Saturday explained why Pence and Republican state lawmakers left him no choice but to call off his company's $40 million Indianapolis headquarters expansion.
Angie's List Inc. said Saturday that it is canceling plans for a major expansion to its east-side headquarters "as a result of the passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act." The project was expected to create 1,300 jobs by the end of 2019.
