FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne's city council is considering a resolution supporting a state hate crime law.
Over the summer, a summer legislative study committee didn't pass a recommendation for a hate crime even though Governor Eric Holcomb supports it.
Tuesday night councilman Geoff Paddock hosted a conversation about supporting legislatures in crafting a law.
Indiana is only one of five states without a hate crime law. One state representative says it will likely be brought back up before the next legislative session.
