Oregon Senate Bill 2 Passes 19-7 in Concurrence Vote

Basic Rights Oregon

The Oregon Equality Act, Senate Bill 2, has passed the Oregon Senate 19-7. Today's vote was a concurrence vote based on a small amendment to the religious exemption that simply clarified the exemption. The Oregon Equality Act would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in areas such as housing, employment, public accommodation and public education. Next stop is the Governor's desk.
