Mississippi representative for 12th District and Oxford resident, Jay Hughes has issued a news release announcing a press conference tomorrow, April 12, concerning the HB 1523 (“Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act”).

Members of the Mississippi House of Representatives will hold a press conference at 9:45 am, Tuesday, April 12, on the Mississippi Capitol steps.

The purpose of the conference is to announce the immediate introduction of a concurrent suspension resolution intended to suspend the rules and regular deadlines in the House of Representatives. Members who opposed the bill will seek the approval of the introduction and passage of the “THE MISSISSIPPI ECONOMIC & TOURISM RECOVERY ACT (an opportunity to repeal HB1523).”

This resolution is in direct response to the local and national negative consequences on Mississippi, its economic development, tourism industry, and perception of the good people of Mississippi. This suspension resolution is the required first step in a process to allow the repeal HB1523, and all of its discriminatory consequences.
