Representatives Leding, Murdock, M. Hodges, Magie, G. McGill, Sabin, D. Whitaker, Blake, V.Flowers, M.J. Gray, Tucker, Burch, Love, F. Allen and Senators Elliott, L. Chesterfield, Bond
for filing HB 2088:
For An Act To Be Entitled AN ACT TO PROVIDE ENHANCED PENALTIES FOR A CRIMINAL OFFENSE COMMITTED BECAUSE OF THE VICTIM’S RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, ETHNICITY, ANCESTRY, NATIONAL ORIGIN, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY, OR DISABILITY; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.
The state I love has legislators who continue to try to legislate to take away rights. During a session that has at times been mean and stingy to the poor and hungry and has cruelly sent up bill after bill that has no purpose but to show intent to discriminate against the LGBTQ community in AR. It started in 2015 and continues this year. There are so many issues to take up to make good laws to help the citizens of AR, but we continually see hateful ideas. In 2018 we must go to the polls in numbers too big to ignore and elect reasonable, sane, compassionate, and intelligent lawmakers.
Thank you to the Representatives and Senators who continue to step up and do the right thing. We are paying attention.
