The Governor has vetoed a bill some see as backing religious freedom.

Others see House Bill 279 as legislation that could potentially allow discrimination.

The bill would allow people with "sincerely held" religious beliefs to disregard state laws..unless the state could provide convincing evidence that the law was more important.

In a statement Governor Beshear said the law was well-intentioned but might have unexpected consequences.

He also said it could lead to expensive court cases.

Some critics of the law worried it could allow people to ignore civil rights laws.

Some conservative groups, including the Family Foundation, have already criticized the Governor's decision.

The Legislature can try to override the veto.
