2016 Legislative Preview: MN State Legislative Session Begins as Several State Legislatures Adjourn

by Hayley Miller March 07, 2016

As we mark the tenth week of the 2016 legislative session, at least half of the nation’s state legislatures are still in session. The only state legislature starting this week is Minnesota.

While Minnesota’s begins, several are coming to a close. New Mexico and Wyoming have already adjourned. Florida, Indiana, Utah and Washington adjourn this week.

Currently, HRC is tracking nearly 200 anti-LGBT bills in 32 states. These bills are part of an onslaught of anti-LGBT bills being pushed this year by anti-equality activists around the country.

The types of legislation vary from targeting the rights of transgender people, to eliminating local non-discrimination protections, to explicitly authorizing anti-LGBT discrimination by individuals, businesses and even taxpayer-funded agencies.

To learn more about what lies ahead for equality in your backyard, visit HRC’s newest resource, “Preview 2016: Pro-Equality and Anti-LGBT State and Local Legislation.”
