House GOP kills nondiscrimination measure… again

leave a comment »

House Republicans in a General Laws subcommittee last night killed Del. Adam Ebbin’s HB2385, which would prohibit discrimination in public employment based on sexual orientation. A majority of the House Democratic Caucus co-patroned the bill, while GOP Del. Todd Gilbert argued that the measure “may not be in the best interest of our society.”

Video of the vote is below:

Republicans killed an identical bill from Del. Ebbin last year.
