Gay Rights Bill Expected to Pass Maryland Senate

The Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, which has in the past impeded gay rights legislation, is expected to pass a statewide ban on discrimination against lesbian and gay men in housing and employment. If approved in committee, the bill is expected to pass easily in the Senate and would be signed by Gov. Parris Glendening (D), who has lead anti-discrimination efforts in the state. If passed, Maryland will join 10 other states and the District of Columbia in protecting lesbians and gay men from discrimination.
