Governor-Nathan-Deal

ALBANY –¬†Governor Nathan Deal says vetoing the religious freedom bill was the right move for the state of Georgia. His veto got mixed reaction from people in the peach state.

“I can’t anticipate what they general assembly will do next year, you know I vetoed the bill because as I said before I don’t think we have to discriminate against anybody to protect the people of faith and I still believe that.

The bill would have allowed faith-based organizations in Georgia to deny services and jobs to members of the LGBT community.
