Legislation reintroduced to add protections for sexual orientation/gender identity
A Michigan bill which would expand civil rights protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity/expression has been reintroduced in the legislature. House Bill 4297 is sponsored by 50 Democrats and 1 Republican (Rep. Tommy Brann, R-Wyoming).

Currently, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act protects people from discrimination based on religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, height, weight, familial status, or marital status. A bipartisan effort to expand the protections in 2014 failed.

The group Fair and Equal Michigan is also leading an effort to change the law via ballot initiative in 2022. Last fall, the group submitted 483,461 signatures to the state for its initiative. -MLive https://bit.ly/2OdmAZ8
