House Minority Leader Crystal Quade Releases
Statement following Governor Signing Senate Bills 39 & 49
House Minority Leader Crystal Quade released a statement following Governor Parson signing SB 39 and SB 49, bills to persecute transgender children:
“The governor had a chance to protect innocent families who are just trying to live their lives in peace. Instead he chose to persecute them. The governor could have said ‘no’ to bigotry and hate. Instead he embraced it. History tends to reflect poorly on oppression and the oppressors, and the stain of this action will not wash away,” said Quade in a Facebook statement.
President Biden signed an Executive Order to increase the economic security of military and veteran spouses, caregivers, and survivors – building on the Administration’s commitment to uphold our nation’s sacred obligation to our service members and Veterans.
