MOSCOW, May 30 (RAPSI) - The State Duma will hold the second reading of a bill banning the promotion of homosexuality among children at a meeting in June, Yelena Mizulina, the head of the State Duma Committee on Family, Women's and Children's Issues and a member of the A Just Russia party, told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, State Duma Deputy Speaker Sergei Neverov told journalists that the deputies are refining the bill for the second reading and will propose it for discussion at a meeting in June.

The draft law of the Novosibirsk Legislative Assembly imposing fines for promoting homosexuality among children was adopted in the first reading on Jan. 25, 2013.

The committee ruled that the bill may be amended until May 25, with any amendments to be discussed further by interested parties, including the LGBT community.

The bill submitted to the State Duma in March 2012 stipulates that anyone involved in the promotion of homosexuality among children will be fined 4,000 ($127) to 5,000 rubles ($159). Specifically, if a promoter holds an official post, he or she will have to pay 40,000 ($1,270) to 50,000 rubles ($1,586), while companies will have to pay 400,000 ($12,690) to 500,000 rubles ($15,863).

The bill may be fully enforced by the end of the spring Duma session, or by mid-July, according to Mirzulina.
