INDIANAPOLIS – State Rep. Dan Forestal (D-Indianapolis) issued the following statement after learning that Roncalli High School will discriminate against a second counselor’s same-sex marriage:

“It concerns me as a graduate of Roncalli, a lifelong Hoosier, and a state legislator that more than $6 million in Hoosier tax dollars is funding discriminatory practices. A proposal I introduced earlier this session—voted down by House Republicans—would have prevented institutions that receive public tax dollars from discriminating against their faculty, staff, and students. I will continue to work to ensure that Hoosier tax dollars no longer fund these discriminatory actions and I call on House Republicans to join me in this effort.”
