Anti-discrimination bills for transgender people advance – By Ed Vogel – Las Vegas Review-Journal

Carson City — Discrimination against transgender people in public accommodations or in the purchase or rental of housing is prohibited under bills passed on party-line votes Friday by a Senate panel.

Senate Commerce and Labor Committee members voted 4-3 for Senate Bill 331 that would make it unlawful for hotels and motels to discriminate on the basis of one’s gender “identify and expression.” That’s defined as the “appearance, expression or behavior of a person, regardless of the person’s assigned sex at birth.”
