Here is the story from the State House News Service about the new bill:
A legislative committee has begun polling its members on a long-stalled bill to include transgender residents in the state’s non-discrimination laws, setting up a vote in the House this week, according to a top deputy to Speaker Robert DeLeo.
The Judiciary Committee issued a poll Monday afternoon to its 17 members, and committee co-chair Rep. Eugene O’Flaherty (D-Chelsea) said he anticipates the bill reaching the floor for a vote before midnight Wednesday, when the Legislature begins a seven-week recess.
The proposal, he said, is a redrafted version of a bill that would have also required “sex-segregated facilities, accommodations, resorts and amusements” to grant transgender residents access, based on their preferred “gender identity.”
PLEASE MAKE YOUR CALLS BEFORE 930 A.M. ON TUESDAY.
