FDP Chair Tant Statement on Rep. Artiles’ Discriminatory Bill

Posted

Today, the House Subcommittee on Civil Justice voted to pass Rep. Frank Artiles' discriminatory, anti-transgender HB 583 on a party line vote. Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant released the following statement:

“I was appalled today as I watched Florida Republicans stand united to write discrimination into law. Frank Artiles’ bill is a mean spirited attempt to bully Floridians, and places an undue burden on our businesses. This is a bigoted solution in search of a problem, and the Florida GOP should be ashamed of themselves.”
