REPUBLICANS INTRODUCE UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST TRANSGENDER GRANITE STATERS


CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –Today, the House Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs Committee heard Republican-sponsored bill HB 1180, allowing discrimination against Transgender people in public entities like schools and prisons. Following the hearing, Deputy Ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Gerri Cannon (D-Somersworth) released the following statement:


“This bill is deeply disturbing, not only because of the ramifications that even the introduction of this has on further stigmatizing the transgender community, but also because it is unconstitutional. For the state to discriminate against transgender people in schools and in our prisons is a violation of the Bill of Rights. The passage of this bill would result in a flood of lawsuits in our local communities and threaten the safety of transgender people across New Hampshire. This bill is nothing more than a bigoted attack on transgender Granite Staters and must be emphatically stopped.”
