McAuliffe vetoes religious freedom bill

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has now vetoed a record-setting 91 bills. His latest veto was on a bill carried by Senator Bill Carrico that would have shielded those whose refused to perform same sex marriage ceremonies or allow clerks to deny licenses.

McAuliffe said the legislation prefers one religious viewpoint over all others and would effectively legalize discrimination.

The governor vetoed the same bill last year, saying the law was bad for business and make same-sex couples feel unwelcome in Virginia.
