Meanwhile in Michigan, Democratic State Rep. Sarah Anthony, introduced a bill to prevent hair discrimination in July of 2019. However, Anthony’s bill was sent to the state legislature’s House Government Operations committee. Anthony said this is where “bills go and die,” and explains that the “disappointing part is listening to colleagues who don’t understand the purpose of the legislation. It’s frustrating for me who hears the stories all the time” Anthony said she will l fight for the bill as long as she is a state representative.” (Source: lansingstatejournal.com)
