Attorney General Jeff Landry vs. Gov. John Bel Edwards on LGBT discrimination, transgender issues


Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, squaring against Gov. John Bel Edwards once again, says the state doesn't have to comply with an executive order protecting LGBT state workers and contractors from discrimination.*Landry filed his opinion the same day the Louisiana Senate failed to pass LGBT nondiscrimination laws in the workplace ? by a vote of a mere 8 yeas to 25 nays.

Edwards' order, the first statewide measure protecting transgender people in the state, prohibits discrimination on the "basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, political affiliation, disability, or age," and extends that protection in services provided by state agencies.

Landry's opinion says "there is no constitutional or statutory provision in Louisiana banning discrimination on the basis of 'gender identity'" and that Edwards has overstepped his constitutional authority "by attempting to create new legislation in violation of the separation of powers."

The A.G. needs to get over himself & stop discriminating against the LGBT community.
