NEW HAMPSHIRE: Legislature Adds Trans Protections To Civil Rights Law, GOP Gov. Chris Sununu To Sign Bill

Via press release from Freedom For All Americans:

In a legislative victory two years in the making, the New Hampshire Senate, by a bipartisan vote of 14-10, voted in favor of a bill, HB 1319, that adds transgender-inclusive nondiscrimination protections to the state’s existing civil rights law. The bill now heads to the desk of Republican Governor Chris Sununu, who confirmed almost immediately through a spokesperson to reporters that he will sign.

With this historic vote – and previous passage through the Republican-led House earlier this month – the Granite State will soon become the 19th in country to enact statewide comprehensive nondiscrimination protections in housing, employment, and public accommodations for all LGBTQ people, should Governor Sununu sign. As a result, New Hampshire becomes the first state since 2016 with a proactive victory on LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections.

We STILL don’t have this in New York. New fucking York!
