"Laws ultimately reflect a nation's values, and this legislation, once passed, will send a strong message that America rejects all forms of hate violence, including bias-motivated crimes against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. This committee vote marks the beginning of the end of a long-fought battle."

--Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force, following approval by the House Judiciary Committee of an LGBT-inclusive hate crimes bill
