Last night, the Metro Council voted 7-3 against a resolution expressing support for HB 12, a bill to repeal the unconstitutional provisions of Louisiana’s Crime Against Nature law.  The three Council members voting in support of the resolution were Councilmen John Delgado and Ryan Heck, the resolutions sponsors, and Councilwomen C. Denise Marcelle. Speaking in favor of the resolution were representatives from Equality Louisiana, the ACLU of Louisiana, and other interested community members.
