APPROVED: Trans Anti-Discrimination Bills Win Final from Nevada Legislature

The Nevada Assembly gave final approval today to two transgender anti-discrimination bills and sent them to the governor, the AP reports:

The Assembly on Monday passed a bill adding transgender people to the list of groups protected from discrimination in housing or rental agreements.

Lawmakers also passed a measure prohibiting discrimination against transgender people in public places such as restaurants. The bill makes an exception so bars can host gender-based promotions such as Ladies Night.

The bills join a separate bill protecting transgender Nevadans from discrimination in employment which reached Governor Brian Sandoval's desk last week.
