Record Number of Legislators Sign On as Co-sponsors of Bill to End Discrimination

A bipartisan slate of Pennsylvania legislators has introduced critical bills to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people from discrimination. The legislation, H.B. 300 and S.B. 300, would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression statewide in employment, housing, credit, and public accommodations.

Although 34 cities and towns have municipal ordinances already in place protecting LGBT individuals from discrimination, statewide legislation is critical to ensuring that all Pennsylvanians are protected.

This year’s introduction of H.B. / S.B. 300 is historic, as over 100 legislators (listed below) from the House and the Senate have signed on to sponsor this bill. We are thrilled to have the support of a record-breaking number of sponsors, Democrats and Republicans alike!

As our state is the only one in the region where LGBT citizens can be fired, denied a mortgage, or refused a hotel room simply because of who they are or who they love — this legislation is imperative to moving Pennsylvania forward.

Use the list below to see if your legislators are on board as sponsors. If they are, make sure to say thanks. If they aren’t, reach out and urge them to do the right thing and sponsor the bill!
