Subject: A. 2826 / S. 425
AN ACT to amend the executive law, the civil rights law and the education law in relation to prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.
This bill would extend the reach of New York State's civil rights and human rights protections to more than one million New Yorkers who are gay, lesbian or bisexual. The New York Civil Liberties Union strongly supports equal protection under the law for gays, lesbians and bisexuals. Consequently, we strongly urge the passage of this bill.
