Governor Nathan Deal is calling for changes on a south Georgia state senator's religious liberty bill.
Governor Deal said that he rejects any measure that would allow discrimination in order to protect people of faith.
Senator Greg Kirk's First Amendment Defense Act of Georgia aims to protect the religious liberties of Georgians who believe in the traditional definition of marriage.
Kirk said he's working with the House to make changes.
"I'm hoping that we'll have a conference committee to come together and be able to come up with something that we all can live with," said Kirk.
Critics said the bill would lead to economic boycotts and keep film projects and other businesses from coming to the state.
Kirk said those are scare tactics used by the LGBT community.
