A bill that’s meant to add safeguards for religious leaders has some lawmakers worried about the unintended consequences it could have on marriage equality. 

Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports.

Republican Rep. Nino Vitale of Urbana says his bill will help all sides avoid legal action.

The proposal would ensure that religious leaders and buildings owned by religious establishments have the right to not to perform or host marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.
