Hasegawa offers testimony in support of overturning I-200

The Senate’s State Government, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee heard a bill Friday that would end Washington’s Affirmative Action ban, which has been in place since 1998. Bill sponsor Bob Hasegawa, D-Seattle, said that repealing the ban would help undo the racial stratification created by ‘color-blind’ approaches to diversity.
