JACKSON, Miss.- The Mississippi Economic Council and Mississippi state chamber of commerce are in opposition to the religious liberties act that was passed in the house and senate recently.
The bill waits to go to the Governor’s desk for passing or veto, but no word yet on what he will do.
MEC and other businesses in the area such as Nissan, Toyota, Tyson Foods, say that they will not support a bill that interferes with their own non-discriminatory policy.
Those in support of the bill say it protects the religious freedoms of those who feel their rights are violated if they are forced to serve a same-sex couple.
Major corporations say it will lead to discrimination if passed into law.
