Greater STL Inc Opposes HJR 53

Jason Hall, the CEO of Greater St. Louis, Inc., issued the following statement today on HJR 53, an anti-transgender bill progressing through the Missouri House.

This morning, the Missouri House Committee on Rules – Administrative Oversight advanced HJR 53, a bill that would discriminate against transgender athletes. Greater St. Louis, Inc., is opposed to this anti-transgender legislation. There is no room for discrimination in Missouri, and these policies make our communities less inclusive and harm our economy. Greater St. Louis, Inc., will continue to speak out and work against discriminatory policies like HJR 53 that hurt businesses and economic growth, stifle talent attraction, and make our state less inclusive.
