Hagan: Amendment One gives businesses a reason to go elsewhere (Audio)

As early voting gets underway Thursday, U.S. Senator Kay Hagan is reiterating her opposition to the anti-gay marriage amendment. Hagan told N.C. Policy Watch on Wednesday that the ballot initiative has far-reaching negative consequences for our families, our children and our communities:

“We cannot afford…to give businesses a reason to grow and locate elsewhere.”

Hagan joins us on News & Views this weekend to discuss Amendment One, as well as her new legislation that would ensure federal assistance for college students is not used for marketing by the for-profit higher education industry.

For a preview of her radio interview with Chris Fitzsimon, click below:
