Hate Crimes
(wgvu) - There's a movement under way in the
Legislature to expand Michigan's hate crime law to include
intimidation of gays and lesbians and people with disabilities.
The changes also would make it specifically illegal to hang a
noose or burn a cross on someone else's property.
State Representative Paul Condino, chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee, says he's introducing legislation to toughen
the state's hate crime law.
The Southfield Democrat tells the Detroit Free Press that the
changes will be debated during the Legislature's lame-duck session
this fall. But the bill faces an uncertain future in the
Republican-controlled Senate.
