State Democratic party speaks out on Bill 1523

Mississippi Democratic Party spokesperson, Ouida Meruvia, issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon after Governor Phil Bryant signed HB 1523 into law.

"It is incredibly disappointing that Governor Bryant and Republican leaders of our state, despite our history, have decided to pass a law that licenses discrimination against our own citizens. Instead of tearing down walls that divide, the Republican Party has spent this session building new barriers of bigotry. We must do better."
