An anti-discrimination bill to help protect the LGBTQ community in the state will be filed in January ahead of the state legislative session.

State Sen. Jacob Candelaria, D-Albuquerque, is sponsoring the panic defense bill, which he introduced in the 2019 Legislature. That year, SB 159 passed two committees but Candelaria said he pulled the bill to wait for a friendlier time in the Legislature.
