A bill that would prevent discrimination against state employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity was introduced in Georgia.

This law, called the Fair Employment Practices Act and HB 323, would expand to the state similar laws already in place in many counties.

«Now is the time for the state of Georgia to send a clear message that we will not discriminate against any employee in regard to their sexual orientation and gender identity. Everyone deserves to be treated equally, and we should value our diversity,» said Rep. Drenner, the state’s first openly gay legislator, in a statement.

«This bill will help us attract and retain the best and the brightest employees, not only from Georgia and across the United States, but from across the world.»

This bill is likely to pass because it is only for the state, not private companies, so, almost about twenty Republican representative support it.
