Maryland Transgender Bill Killed

Maryland Senators today voted to quash a bill that would have added ‘transgender’ as a protected class when it comes to employment, credit, and housing discrimination.

The bill, called “Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Act,” had been much-debated, even among gay rights activists, with some calling Senate members “discriminatory” for seemingly delaying its passage and others crying for its rejection, saying the bill did not go far enough in protection.

Too bad they did not do that for the "Dream Act" which was supported by the Maryland Catholic Conference. BTW, I know that the MCC was against this bill but I don't remember seeing anything on it. Do you?
