Petition filed against Gov. Bryant over HB 1523

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) – Pine Belt Reverend Dr. Susan Hrostowski has signed a petition, alongside many others, against Governor Phil Bryant in retaliation of House Bill 1523, which went into effect last month.

Hrostowski is a member of Campaign for Southern Equality and currently serves as the vicar of St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Collins, Mississippi, and lives in Forrest County with her wife and their 16-year-old son. She said that if the Court of Appeals accepts the petition, the focus of the argument will be that they consider the bill to be unconstitutional.
