Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen co-sponsors bill that
would facilitate the investigation & prosecution of local Hate
crimes

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a senior member of the
Florida Congressional Delegation, is pleased to inform that she co-sponsored the
“Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act” that would facilitate the
investigation and prosecution of hate crimes at the local and state level.

The legislation, introduced by Congressman Mark Kirk (R-Il), provides assistance to
state and local law enforcement agencies and amends federal law to improve the
investigation and prosecution of violent, bias-motivated crimes. Congresswoman Ros-
Lehtinen also co-sponsored this bill in the last Congress and she is lobbying other
Members on its behalf.

Said Ros-Lehtinen, “Hate crimes have no place in society and thus I am pleased to
once again be an original co-sponsor of this important legislation. I will work hard to
bring my other colleagues on board because we must do more to make it easier for
state and local law enforcement to investigate and prosecute these awful crimes. I
urge my colleagues to support this Bill.”
