Legislative Update from Rep. Brenden Jones – April 3, 2017

Legislative Update from Rep. Brenden Jones – April 3, 2017

Last week was a busy week in the General Assembly. Below is a summary of key bills I introduced or sponsored, key actions taken by committees on which I serve, and key House votes.

Statement on HB 142

I want to take a moment to thank everyone for sharing their concerns and keeping me in their thoughts and prayers during today’s vote on HB2. I can say, unequivocally, that I am absolutely against allowing men and women to share restrooms or changing facilities. I am a father of two young daughters, and I would not support a bill that I felt in any way would put them in danger.  Click here to read the full statement.
