We've made it! We're in there with some of the most intolerant states in the country.
California has banned state-funded travel for employees to four states that have enshrined anti-LGBTQ legislation in their law books since June 29, 2015.
The ban stems from Assembly Bill 1887 and affects state-sanctioned travel to North Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kansas.
Tennessee lawmakers passed and Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed into law last year a statute that supercedes the American Counseling Association’s professional code of ethics, which required state-licensed counselors and therapists to treat members of the LGBT community regardless of the provider’s personal beliefs.
The Volunteer State’s law now allows counselors and therapists to reject clients whose goals are at odds with the professionals’ “sincerely held beliefs.”
