Walmart is calling on Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson to veto the state’s religious liberty bill, which is similar to the one passed in Indiana last week.

Doug McMillion, Walmart Chief Executive Officer, released a statement saying the bill threatens inclusion and the values of the company, AP reports.

Arkansas lawmakers approved the bill Tuesday. Gov. Hutchinson says he plans to sign the bill into law.

Walmart previously said the measure would send the wrong message about the company’s home state.
