In My Opinion: Equal rights for transgender – By Kelly Metzgar – Press-Republican

The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) is New York state’s transgender non-discrimination bill.

GENDA successfully passed the State Assembly for the sixth straight year in April 2013. The Republican leadership of the Senate still refuses (up to and including the last day of their session, which ended recently) to bring the bill up for a vote, especially when there is a majority of support for its passage from both sides of the political aisle.
