The governors of Connecticut, Vermont and New York have banned non-essential state-funded travel to Indiana in the wake of a controversial law critics say discriminates against gay people. Massachusetts' governor is declining to do the same.
Governor Charlie Baker’s office put out a written statement saying Baker disagrees with the Indiana law. But - the statement continues -- the governor is not proposing any restrictions on the ability of the Commonwealth’s employees to do their work.
Democratic House Speaker Bob Deleo says he believes Baker’s response is sufficient.
“If enough states are out there making a statement I quite frankly think that’s more valuable than banning visit to Indiana,' said DeLeo.
Besides, DeLeo says, except for the Final Four, he doesn't know who would be traveling to Indiana now anyway.
