Indiana Religious Bill Stalls

An Indiana bill that would allow religious organizations to hire employees based on religion and require them to be religious appears to have stalled. The Indiana Senate approved the bill in February, but it wasn't heard in the House. The measure would have allowed the hiring guidelines even if organizations receive state contracts. Republican State Sen. Travis Holdman of Markle authored the bill. He says it would have put Indiana in line with federal law and that he filed it to help Indiana Wesleyan University obtain state workforce training grants.
