Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy took to Twitter Monday morning to announce he will be signing an executive order barring state-funded travel to Indiana in the wake of Gov. Mike Pence signing a religious Freedom law.

Pence went on ABC this past weekend in an attempt to explain the law in the face of the current backlash. Eighteen other states have similar laws and have faced no similar criticism. Additionally, former President Bill Clinton once signed similar legislation at the national level.

Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act will not be changing despite critics saying it allows business owners to discriminate against members of the LGBT community, state Gov. Mike Pence said today during an exclusive interview on ABC’s “This Week.”

Pence described the media coverage and opposition to the law as “shameless rhetoric,” saying it strengthens the foundation of First Amendment rights rather than discriminates.
