DNC Statement on Governor Ron DeSantis Signing “Don’t Say Gay” Bill Into Law

In response to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signing HB1557 into law, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“Once again, Ron DeSantis is dangerously dividing Floridians because he thinks it advances his own personal politics. This piece of legislation will only force thousands of LGBTQ+ children to live in fear and is a green light to politicians to censor schools and make the classroom less safe. Time and time again, DeSantis has proven he cares more about catering to extremists than protecting his constituents. Floridians deserve a governor who isn’t solely focused on scoring his next Fox News interview and is actually working to deliver for them.”
