San Francisco Assemblymember Phil Ting held a press conference Friday morning in San Francisco's Chinatown to announce a new bill he is proposing to address the rise in hate crimes.

Ting says he was surprised to find out that California does not require law enforcement agencies to have a uniform hate crimes policy. He wants to see consistent enforcement of hate crime laws and reporting of hate crimes when officers are filing their report.
