Madison County Democratic Party Asks: What’s the Answer to this Question Concerning Divisive House Bill 312?
HUNTSVILLE, AL, January 13, 2022 – The Madison County Democrats stand with Rep. Anthony Daniels on the questions and intent surrounding the extremely divisive bill introduced by Republicans this session around “divisive concepts.”
On March 17, 2022, Alabama House Republicans recklessly pushed through an ill-conceived and politically motivated bill, HB312, that would ban so-called “divisive concepts” from being taught in public schools. Madison County Democrats strongly oppose this attack on free speech and their attempt to whitewash history. Democrats stand for freedom of speech and honesty. We also would like to take a moment to applaud the courage of Madison County Republican Rep. Mike Ball for his speech on the House floor and for voting his conscience. Some things aren’t political - they’re just a matter of right and wrong.
”What do I tell my daughter?”
