YTT Online Reader Poll: Should Gov. Baker Sign Transgender Rights Bill?

Jul 07, 2016 08:23PM ● By Bill Gilman


The State Legislature, this week, reached agreement on a bill addressing the issue of "Transgender Rights."

The compromise bill, S2407 would allow transgender individuals to use facilities, such as bathrooms, locker rooms, etc,  that match their gender identity, but not necessarily their anatomical gender.

The bill would also prohibit discrimination against transgender individuals in museums, malls, libraries, restaurants, and other public accommodations.

The bill is now on the desk of Gov. Charlie Baker, who has said he would give it consideration. While running for governor back in 2010, Baker had vowed to veto a so-called "bathroom bill" but has since softened his stance and now says he will consider signing it into law.

We want to know what you think.

Should Gov. Charlie Baker sign the Transgender Rights Bill (S2407) into law?
