Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) made the following statement today regarding his decision to assign bias crimes legislation to the Senate Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedure:
STATEHOUSE (Dec. 28, 2018) — “At this time, I have decided to assign all bias crimes-related legislation to the Senate Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedure. This does not mean these bills are dead by virtue of their assignment to this committee. My intention is to use the Rules committee to hold all proposals related to this issue until our caucus has had the opportunity to fully discuss each proposal and decide which aspects, if any, of the offered legislation have support to move forward.”
