More reaction to HB 1523

April 7, 2016

House bill 1523, authored by house speaker Philip Gunn, was signed by governor Phil Bryant on Tuesday.


Since signing the bill; the action has been met with great criticism even here at home. Former

president of Meridian Community College, dr. Bill Scaggs says the passing of the house bill is simply a civil rights issue.


Rep. Greg Snowden who voted in favor of the bill insists that the bill is not discriminating against anyone; but rather, protecting people.


However, Scaggs added that he believes the action by the house on Tuesday will make it difficult to bring in new industry to Mississippi.


Rep. Snowden hopes that Mississippians will take a close look at the bill as he believes it is being misrepresented and misunderstood.
