INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Mike Pence, the governor of Indiana, signed a bill that would actually allow businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers.

It's all in the name of what the state calls religious freedom. The bill is called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Because of it, the NCAA, which is headquartered in Indianapolis, says its concerned about how the bill could affect student athletes and employees.

Opponents argue that it gives business owners the right to discriminate against LGBT customers.

However, those in favor of the law say it protects businesses from having to provide services for things they don't support, like same sex marriage.
