The ban against travel to Indiana for trips funded or sponsored by New York State has been lifted.

Governor Cuomo has announced that he has reviewed the ammendments to Indiana's state law and consulted with LGBT advocacy groups. He said he believes the changes to Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act will now prevent the law from discriminating against gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender citizens and travelers.

Cuomo said that in New York, all Americans, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation or any other protected classes, should be treated equally under the law.
