WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Kennedy issued the following statement on today’s advancement of House Bill 413 by state Rep. Miguez:

“We don’t need banks that ask you how you voted before they’ll do business with you.  We don’t need red banks and blue banks.  I applaud Rep. Miguez for his bill,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “In Washington, I’ve filed the Freedom Financing Act to prohibit big banks from refusing to do business with customers who legally sell firearms.  I’ve also filed the No Red and Blue Banks Act to stop discriminatory banks from receiving federal contracts.  I’m just sorry that bills like this are necessary to protect law-abiding Louisiana citizens’ constitutional rights.”
