There’s a law in California, AB 1887, action that California took to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. AB 1887 prohibits a state agency, department, board, or commission from requiring any state employees, officers, or members to travel to a state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law that has the effect of voiding or repealing existing state or local protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Also the California law prohibits the state from approving a request for state-funded or state-sponsored travel to such a state.
The states that made that recent list are:
Well, added now to that list is the state of Oklahoma. You see, Oklahoma adopted a new law in 2016 allowing adoption agencies to refuse to work with member of the LGBT community. Liberals at their finest. We shall see how log this ban lasts, once the economy in California starts feeling the crunch.
Attorney General Xavier Becerra California taxpayers says are taking a stand against bigotry and in support of those who would be harmed by this prejudiced policy.
The craziness goes even further by preventing California State University and University of California systems from sending staff members or students to states on the banned list.
But public universities are exempt from the ban, and they are continuing to send athletic teams to those states for tournaments or games. In fact, UCLA’s football team is scheduled to play at the University of Oklahoma on Sept. 8.
