New Hampshire State Senate Approves Transgender Non-Discrimination Protections


The New Hampshire state Senate, by a 14-10 vote margin, has approved a bill that will add gender identity to the state's nondiscrimination law.

New Hampshire is the only state in the New England area without transgender protections in its non-discrimination law.

Notable - both chambers of the state legislature are controlled by Republicans.

Openly gay state Rep. Ed Butler (D) introduced the measure in the House as HB 1319, which was approved in March by a vote of 195-129, with 51 Republican votes.

Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has indicated he will sign the bill into law.
