Howard council bans discrimination based on gender identity

Legislation prohibiting gender identity discrimination was approved Monday night in Howard County, the third jurisdiction in Maryland to adopt a bill like this.

According to the Associated Press, the bill would bar discrimination based on gender identity and expression in housing, law enforcement, employment, public accommodations, financing, and health and social services.

Montgomery County and Baltimore City previously passed similar legislation.

The bill was approved by the County Council on Monday and will have to be signed by County Executive Ken Ullman. The discrimination ban would go into effect 61 days after Ullman approves it.
