Gay Civil Rights Bill Moves Forward
From www.365gay.com

(Denver, Colorado) The Colorado Senate has approved a bill to ban bias against members of the state's LGBT community. The Senate Tuesday night gave its final accent to the legislation. It passed the first vote last week.

The approval came despite a last minute attempt by Senate Republicans to derail the measure. When that failed GOP lawmakers attempted to have protections for the transgendered removed.

Sen. Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado Springs) sought to have a provision included in the bill to allow employers to demand their employees wardrobe remain consistent with their gender at the time of their hiring.

2. It'll be vetoed instantly.
Sorry to say, but I certainly appreciate the effort, and the fact that it's shaken the truly whacko RWers out of the trees.
