Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on Passage of Anti-LGBT Bills in Michigan Senate

June 10, 2015

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement today after the Michigan State Senate passed a package of anti-LGBT adoption bills:  

“It is astounding to me that Republicans in Lansing, rather than working to fix Michigan’s crumbling roads, instead chose to spend their time today codifying discrimination into state law. This latest package of anti-LGBT bills does nothing to create jobs or spur our state’s economy. Instead it gives the state a license to discriminate against loving Michigan families. The State Legislature should be ashamed of their misplaced priorities and I hope that Governor Snyder vetoes this package of extreme bills.”
