Devin Scillian was joined by Randy Richardville, Stephen Henderson, Jill Alper and Sandy Baruah to talk about religious freedom acts and whether one might be coming to Michigan.
Richardville, a former Michigan Senate majority leader, said that he doesn’t think that Indiana’s situation will have a major effect on the state of Michigan.
Alper, a political strategist, talked about the governor’s reaction to the increasing talks about religious freedom acts and what it means moving forward.
Baruah, the President and CEO of Detroit Regional Chamber, says that this issue is very bad for business. He said having laws like this in place prevents the best workers from coming into the state.
Henderson, of the Detroit Free Press, said that the issue has become more aggressive and assertive and talked about what could happen to settle the case.
