News: Indiana law, Colorado bill

The Bloomington, Indiana council approved transgender protections last night.

In addition, the Colorado Senate yesterday approved Senate Bill 81, which includes transgender employment protections. Governor Owens vetoed a similar measure last year. Opponents argued the measure could lead to frivolous complaints and lawsuits based on "perceived" discrimination. Currently, transgender protections are in place in Boulder and Denver.
