Legislative Development: State of Washington Extends Civil Rights Protection to Gays and Lesbians

The state of Washington passed a civil rights bill on Friday that extends protection to Gays and Lesbians.  The measure, which was first introduced in 1977, adds “sexual orientation” to a state law that bans discrimination in housing, employment and insurance, making Washington the 17th state passing a law covering gays and lesbians. It is the seventh to protect transgender people.  Source:  Rachel La Corte APress Writer, abcnews.go.com. For the complete story, please click here (last visited January 28, 2006, reo).
