Indiana Lawmakers / Hate Crime Legislation
February 10, 2017
Indiana remains one of few states in the nation with no hate crime legislation. Some legislators, policy makers and others question if it's really necessary or would just create a protected class. This week on Indiana Lawmakers, host Jon Schwantes covers many of the questions about legislation that continues to be brought before members of the General Assembly, yet fails to pass. Guests Senator John Ruckelshaus, R - Indiananapolis; Representative Greg Porter, D - Indianapolis, and Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry address the cases for and against bias crime legislation, and whether this will be the year that it passes.
