Indy Chamber Statement on Senate Bill 344

Senate Bill 344, while not perfect, was a major step forward in extending protections to LGBT Hoosiers – and ultimately helping Indiana remain competitive for top talent and investment. Despite its failure in the Senate, the expansion of statewide non-discrimination protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity remains squarely on the pro-business agenda. An open and inclusive culture is part of a healthy business climate and we’ve worked hard to encourage that kind of environment here. Inaction, or any bill that does not advance the issue, only serves to put roadblocks in the way of advancement, a price our economy cannot afford to pay. We appreciate the leadership of senators David Long and Travis Holdman on this issue and for allowing this thoughtful debate.”

Michael Huber, President and CEO, Indy Chamber
