Nevada Governor Signs Transgender Nondiscrimination Bills Into Law

Three laws will go into effect October 1 that protect transgender Nevadans from discrimination. Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) signed the employment protection bill (AB211) last week and yesterday signed the complementary bills for housing (SB368) and public accommodations (SB331). Though it was unusual for the protections to be delivered in separate bills, they together represent a comprehensive approach to ending discrimination based on gender identity.
