- The office of Rep. John Conyers, primary sponsor of the
federal hate crimes bill HR 1913, says the bill will "could be voted
on Tuesday," April 28, on the floor of the House. The rules committee
will discuss the bill at 1 p.m. Tuesday. Usually, a full floor vote follows
the next day; but, with the prediction of Conyers' office in mind and with
cooperation from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, HR 1913 could even be put
to a vote by late afternoon Tuesday.
- Considering the number of amendments to the bill by House
Republicans in Judiciary last week, all voted down by Democrats, Conyers'
office also says it is probable no amendments will be entertained on the
floor of the House. This would eliminate Rep. King's amendment requiring
a clear statement in the bill that homosexual pedophiles not be specially
- It's now or never to defeat the hate bill in the House!

of the House and Senate: "Please do not vote for the hate bill HR

special federal protection."
