Judy Baker: Speaking out led to demise of HB 2051

Word has spread quickly that Rep. Scott Dieckhaus, chairman of the House Republican Committee, has indicated that HB 2051, the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill, which would prohibit classroom discussion of  sexual orientation, is not going to receive a committee hearing during the 2012 session.

In the accompanying video, Judy Baker, a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, talks about the impact that people speaking out had against this bill, which was sponsored by Rep. Steve Cookson, R-Fairdealing.
