"It is also clear that diversity creates stronger communities and provides Utahns with the best opportunity to achieve the American dream that we call home ownership," said Froerer, a Realtor.

SALT LAKE CITY — "The health, education (and) economic opportunities that we see in Utah families are directly impacted by where they live," Rep. Gage Froerer, R-Huntsville, said as he presented HJR6 commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.

"It is also clear that diversity creates stronger communities and provides Utahns with the best opportunity to achieve the American dream that we call home ownership," said Froerer, a Realtor.

"The Fair Housing Act protects citizens from discrimination when they are renting, buying or taking out loans … on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and presence of children," he said.

The House passed HJR6 on to the Senate for consideration.
