Senate Bill 131 - SEXUAL ORIENTATION DISCRIMINATION

TITLE: "An Act adding to the powers and duties of the State Commission for Human Rights; and relating to and prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity or expression." 

Senate Bill 131 expands current anti-discrimination statutes to include protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Similar provisions already prohibit discrimination based upon race, religion, color, national origin, physical or mental disability, age, sex, marital status, changes in marital status, pregnancy or parenthood.

Senate Bill 131 would protect citizens from discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, financing or credit based upon sexual orientation and gender identity.
