Governor Steve Bullock signs SB107, the revision to the Deviate Sex Acts law in Montana. It removes the unconstitutional language from the books that listed LGBT individuals as felons. It's been nearly two decades in the making.
"I'm not going to talk too long because frankly the longer I talk, the longer this unconstitutional and embarrassing law continues to stay on our books... As everyone here knows, we're not at the finish line, the drivers of this fight for equality are the women who stood up and demanded the right to vote, the drivers of the fight for equality are the people who said that we're not going to go to the back of a public bus, the drivers are those who fight to insure that men and women who have called these plains and mountains home for over 400 generations will never be anything but the first Montanans, and the drivers of this fight for equality are the people who gather here in this rotunda today, those who offer the simple proposition that if two people love each other, they deserve the respect that we'd offer any other couple and the equal rights under our law." --Montana Governor Steve Bullock
