Oregon Gender Identity Bill to be Signed Today

Today at 10 a.m, the Governor of Oregon is expected to sign Senate Bill 2, which prohibits discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation, as well as a bill for civil unions. Here it is in the Oregon Daily Emerald (hat tip to Autumn Sandeen)

So that would bring to nine the number of states with statutes prohibiting gender identity discrimination in employment. (Remember, it's ten if you're talking about discrimination in general, as Hawaii has a statute on housing that includes gender identity.) And now we wait for signatures from the Governors of Iowa, Vermont and Colorado, which will bring the number to 12.
