APut 06/26 1116 Anti-Racist Laws COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Three human rights laws aimed at restricting white supremacists in Idaho take effect next Wednesday. The Church of Jesus Christ Christian (Aryan Nations), a white supremacist group, has its headquarters in Hayden Lake. One of the laws prohibits paramilitary training with the intent to use the training for violent acts against people or property. Another new law allows victims of malicious harassment based on race or religious beliefs to file civil suits as well as criminal charges. "Our intent was to have the strongest human rights legislation in the country," said state Sen. Mary Lou Reed, D-Coeur D'Alene, speaking Wednesday at a picnic for North Idaho College trustees and lawmakers. The third bill affirmed Martin Luther King Day as a state holiday. Last page !
