I was initially apprehensive about this proposal, seeing in it a comparison to the recent citizenship question controversy. What a review of the sponsors list, particularly Senator Baldwin and congressman Grijalva gives me some confidence that the information would not be used incorrectly. Had the suggestion come from Wilbur Ross and William Barr I would not have been nearly as confident. As your constituent, I would advise that you support this bill but also protect the information from misuse. LBGTQ persons are entitled to both the same prerogative and the same protections as any other resident of this republic.
