Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday banned nonessential, state-funded travel to Indiana over its religious freedom law that critics say opens the door to discrimination against gays and lesbians.

The ban applies to all state agencies and public colleges and universities — meaning students and faculty would not be able to participate in athletic or academic events in Indiana. Exceptions would be made for travel deemed "essential to the enforcement of state law or public health and safety."
