Montgomery County, Maryland passes transgender protections

From the Washington Post: The Montgomery County Council unanimously approved broad protections for transgender individuals in housing and employment yesterday, despite vigorous protests from a coalition of conservative groups that said the measure would lead to indecent exposure in public locker rooms and restrooms. The legislation originally contained language similar to the Boston ordinance, but it was removed before the vote was taken. As I discussed previously,

The ordinance must be signed by the county executive before it goes into effect, and she has said that she will sign it.
