Gov. Andrew Cuomo
ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a directive on Friday banning all non-essential state sponsored travel to Indiana in response to the state's new "religious freedom" law.

The law prohibits anything that imposes a "substantially burden" on a person or business' ability to follow his or her religious beliefs, which many interpret as a vehicle to allow businesses to openly — and legally — refuse service to homosexuals.

Cuomo issued a statement to the media explaining his directive. It follows in its entirety.
Today, I direct all agencies, departments, boards and commissions to immediately review all requests for state funded or state sponsored travel to the State of Indiana and to bar any such publicly funded travel that is not essential to the enforcement of state law or public health and safety. The ban on publicly funded travel shall take effect immediately.

New York State has been, and will continue to be, a leader in ensuring that all LGBT persons enjoy full and equal civil rights. With this action, we stand by our LBGT family members, friends and colleagues to ensure that their rights are respected.
