GLBT Related Bills Introduced to the Ky State Legislature

Equal Healthcare Access Ban (HB48)

Sponsored by Stan Lee, this bill would prohibit Kentucky's state colleges and universities
from offering equal healthcare access to all coupled employees, regardless of marital status. It
would overturn the University of Louisville Board of Trustees' decision to include unmarried
employees in the university's health insurance plan, and take coverage away from families
who entered the plan on January 1,2007. We Oppose this bill.

Anti-Fairness Bill

This bill targets gay people for discrimination by tearing down existing protections against
discrimination for LGBT people in Metro Louisville, Lexington/Fayette County, and Covington,
KY. It would also prohibit other cities and counties from enacting Fairness ordinances,
restricting them from passing civil rights protections beyond those already in Kentucky law.
Kentucky law doesn't protect people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or
genderidentity neither does Federal law. We Oppose this bill.

Statewide Fairness Bill

This bill would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender
identity throughout Kentucky in employment, housing, public accommodations, and credit.
Right now only residents of Louisville, Lexington/Fayette County, and Covington, Kentucky
are protected by city ordinance against discrimination. No one should be fired from a job,
denied an apartment, turned away by a restaurant, or refused credit simply because they are
gay, lesbian, bisexual ortransgender. We Support this bill.

Hospital visitation Bill ‘

This bill would allow any adult hospital patient to designate another individual to be treated
as a member of the patient‘sfamily with regard to visitation. We supportthis bill.

School Bullying Bill (HB 64)

This bill, sponsored by Mike Cherry, provides school districts with tools for dealing with
harassment and intimidation against any student, including young people who are targeted
because of their perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. We
Supportthis Bill
