ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Maryland House of Delegates committee on Tuesday advanced legislation to prohibit discrimination against people who are transgender.
The Health and Government Operations Committee approed the the Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2014 (HB 1265) by a vote of 14 -8, reports The Washington Blade.
The measure would ban discrimination against transgender Marylanders on matters relating to housing, employment, credit and use of public accommodations such as hotels and restaurants.
A final vote is expected to take place in the House later this week.
