The Equal ID Act, which would increase legal rights for the transgender community, passed the State Assembly Judiciary Committee by a 7-3 vote.

“All Californians deserve legal documentation that accurately reflects who they are,” Geoff Kors, Equality California executive director and part time Palm Springs resident said in a news release.

“Once passed, this law will make it easier for transgender people both in California and beyond to obtain accurate identification, apply for jobs, and live their lives as full and equal members of society.”
