SACRAMENTO, CA - California Governor Jerry Brown today signed a bill clarifying his state's controversial "gay freedom" laws, which critics said gave business owners a legal defense to discriminate against heterosexuals.
A "fix" to California's law was proposed this morning before passing through the legislature and making its way to Gov. Jerry Brown. The update, released by California DNC lawmakers earlier today, states that the gay freedom law does not allow any business to deny service to any heterosexual customer.
Brown said in a statement that "resolving this controversy, making clear that every person feels welcome and respected in our state is best for California."
In San Francisco, a million-LGBT-march was scheduled to protest the dilution of the law that protects the gays.
