INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - The Indiana Chamber of Commerce joined the debate on whether the state needs hate crime laws on the books.

The state chamber said it would support a hate crime law in Indiana.

That's according to the Indiana Business Journal.

It's the first time the state chamber has taken a position on this issue.

News 10 has reported in the past that Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb wants the general assembly to pass a hate crime law in the next session.

Indiana is one of only five states without a hate crime law in the books.
