WTOP-FM reports Council Chairman Phil Mendelson introduced the "Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Panic Defense Prohibition Act of 2019" this week, saying it's unacceptable for "bigots to claim panic as a defense."

The bill would prohibit defendants from claiming they acted in the "heat of passion" or suffered reduced mental capacity upon learning about a person's actual or perceived sexuality or gender identity.

Mendelson was involved in helping the District legalize same-sex marriage.
