RELEASE: DLCC Highlights The Worst, Most Dangerous Republican Bills Pushed in State Legislatures in 2024

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — As busy 2024 legislative sessions come to end in state legislatures across the country, Republicans’ extremism hellbent on unraveling fundamental freedoms has been on full display. From dangerous abortion restrictions to undermining  LGBTQ+ freedoms to attacking voting rights, state legislatures have become hotbeds of the worst GOP policies, with effects reverberating across the country. Unfortunately, what happens in one corner of the country rarely stays contained – these extreme bills in 2024 indicate where the Republican platform is heading and should be cause for serious alarm. 

Here’s a look at some of the most dangerous legislation state Republicans have pursued this year: 

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee National Press Secretary Sam Paisley issued the following statement:

“Instead of legislating solutions to improve the lives of their communities, Republicans in state legislatures are attacking the freedoms we hold dear. From the ability to seek emergency reproductive health care to the ability to have your vote heard to the ability to decide how and when to grow your family, Republicans are laser-focused on rolling back core rights and freedoms. Nowhere is Republicans’ dangerous agenda more apparent than in the states, as Republicans test the worst of their policy wish list in legislatures. 

“With every extreme bill advanced by Republican lawmakers, the stakes for the 2024 state legislative elections are raised. Democrats are on the frontlines of safeguarding reproductive rights, protecting LGBTQ+ people, and fighting for dignity and respect for every community. GOP extremism underscores the urgency of every vote at our ballot level, and the DLCC will continue sounding the alarm on dangerous Republican extremism.”

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures and building state infrastructure. Over the last decade, we have fought cycle-over-cycle to gain a dozen new legislative chamber majorities and we are leading the effort to bring national attention and investment to our ballot level. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and have the closest connections to Americans’ day-to-day lives. From protecting fundamental freedoms and voting rights to growing the middle class, the DLCC and state legislators are moving the Democratic agenda forward and shaping the future of this country.
