California LGBT Contractors Could Be Listed

Written by 

California-Contractors

After its passage by the Assembly, the law AB 1960 will be introduced to the senate soon. This law would make it possible for the state of California to be able to ask the contractors if they are LGBT.

The assembly passed this law by a vote from 47 to 24. 

As reports the Sacramento BeeSacramento Bee, the Department of General Services currently is required to collect data on contractors by race, ethnicity and gender. AB 1960 would add LGBT-owned businesses to that list.

The bill by Sacramento Democratic Assemblyman Roger Dickinson seeks data involving state contracts for construction, professional services, and for the purchase of materials, supplies or equipment.

Dickinson said the measure would allow state officials and gay or lesbian groups to better pinpoint the extent to which LGBT-owned businesses are helping to drive the state economy.

I don't really understand why contractors should be listed by who they are when the most important is what they do.
