State employee non-discrimination bills

Democrats in the state House and Senate filed bills this week that would prohibit state and local governments from making employment decisions based on a person's sexual orientation.

Equality NC plans to promote the bills when supporters come to the Legislative Building on April 16.

Supporters have failed for years to get this legislation passed. When Democrats ran the legislature, getting a committee to hear the bill was a notable event.

Sen. Josh Stein, a Raleigh Democrat who filed this session's Senate bill, sponsored an identical bill last session that died in the Senate Rules Committee.
