State Chamber Opposes Religious Objections Bill

Mississippi Economic Council President Blake Wilson sent a statement to The Associated Press saying House Bill 1523 conflicts with the organization’s non-discrimination policy.

Businesses including Nissan North America, Toyota, Chevron, Huntington Ingalls Industries, and Entergy haven’t taken a clear stance on the bill, but say they oppose any legislation that might violate their non-discrimination policies regardless of whether they’re intentional.
