Indianapolis-based Angie's List has announced it is canceling a $40 million headquarters expansion due to the state's new law allowing discrimination based on religious grounds, the Indianapolis Star reports:
The proposed expansion of the online consumer ratings service was touted to add 1,000 good-paying jobs over five years and help revitalize a struggling Eastside neighborhood.
"Angie's List is open to all and discriminates against none," Oesterle said, "and we are hugely disappointed in what this bill represents."
The paper notes that Oesterle is a Republican who supported Pence in the race for governor, but that Oesterle has made it clear this new law "hurts the company's ability to recruit and retain top-flight talent."
