Schwarzenegger Signs CA's SB 1441 Into Law
Today, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, signed into law SB 1441. SB 1441, which bans discrimination in state programs and activities was brought to the CA Legislature by Senator Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica).
The "Nondiscrimination in State Programs and Activities Act" prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in state operated or funded services, activities and programs. Basically if you want to receive state funding you can't be bigoted, ass-backwards and pleasured by your ignorance and hate any longer.
Governor Schwarzenegger, despite the huge blow he dealt to the gay and lesbian community by vetoing AB 849, has signed more pro-GLBT laws than any other Governor in California history--and probably in the US for that matter.
