17. The article states they were.

That major companies found the door slammed in its face regarding opposition to RFRA at least so far just points up that the traditional alliance in Indiana between leading corporations in the state and the Republicans who run the legislature and governor's office isn't as tight as some might think. Lobbyists for social conservatives also have considerable influence.

In enacting RFRA, the legislature and Pence untypically defied the wishes of Indiana's largest corporations, including Lilly, Cummins, Cook Group and Anthem.

Cummins and other companies actively testified against RFRA legislation at public hearings. Other companies weighed in with letters and talking to legislators from their home districts.


It would appear Pence acting surprised, has been exposed for just that, acting. These major companies attempted to be heard prior to the passage if this law and were ignored by the state lawmakers.
