DPG Statement on Gov. Deal’s Veto of HB 757

 

 

Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Communications Director Michael Smith issued the following statement on today’s announcement by Gov. Nathan Deal that he will veto HB 757.

 

“We commend Gov. Deal on his decision to reject this discriminatory legislation. Leaders from both sides of the aisle and the business community, as well as the countless Georgians who spoke against the politics of exclusion, also deserve a great deal of thanks for standing firm in the belief that our state is better off when we all have full and equal protection under the law.

 

“For Georgia to move forward, no one can be left behind. The full promise of tomorrow belongs to all of us, and it is up to all of us to ensure that this promise is within every Georgian’s reach.”
