New Mexico Near Adoption of Sexual Orientation Protection


The New Mexico House of Representatives has passed House Bill 314 that would outlaw discrimination based upon sexual orientation. According to KOBTV the bill's backers feel confident that they have enough votes in the Senate and Governor Bill Richardson has promised to sign it if it reaches his desk. A similar bill was adopted in New York last fall. Texas legislators are also considering similar legislation this session. See H.B. 574 and H.B. 1136 in the legislative report.
