An Indianapolis city-county councilor is making his stance on a controversial bill in the Indiana Statehouse known.

Zach Adamson hung a sign at his salon, Urban Designs, declaring "We reserve the right to refuse service to Indiana state legislators. (And others whose backward thinking continue (to) embarrass the good people of Indiana)."

The sign is a statement on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which is designed to allow Hoosiers the right to say no when it comes to providing services for same-sex weddings and other instances that violate their religious belief.

Those against the bill say it will allow businesses to discriminate against members of the gay community. But supporters say it is about protection for business owners.
