Turning now to the nationwide backlash against religious freedom laws, Arkansas' governor changing course refusing to sign the bill after his son asked him to veto it. ABC's gio Benitez is in Indianapolis with the very latest for us this morning. Good morning to you, gio. Reporter: Good morning, Lara. It appears this morning that lawmakers have come up with a fix. They still need to vote on it but it could end this week-long saga. This morning, the fix to the Indiana religious freedom law expected within hours. We'll keep plugging away. Trying to settle on language. Reporter: The revision would make sure the law won't protect businesses like this Indiana pizza shop who make promises like these. If a gay couple was to come in like say we wanted -- they wanted us to provide them pizzas for a wedding, we would have to say no. Reporter: The backlash so swift, the shop forced to close its doors Wednesday. Its yelp page inundated with negative comments even a tweet threatening to burn the shop down. In arc, governor Asa Hutchinson hoping to avoid this citing his own family. It has divided families and there is clearly a generational gap on this issue. My son, Seth, signed the petition asking me, dad, the governor, to veto this bill. Reporter: Back in Indiana as the public awaits the revised law, college basketball teams arrive. The ncaa's final four coaches putting out a joint statement saying "We have made a point to talk about the issue with our teams." Adding "Discrimination of any kind should not be tolerated." And back at that Indiana pizza shop the owners tell our ABC station in South Bend they will keep it closed until the dust settles. That's if it settles at all, George. Good point. Thanks very much.
