Governor Andrew Cuomo has expanded the state’s anti-discrimination rules to include transgender people. The new regulation allows for the protection of transgender people in jobs, schools, loans, and public accommodations. The move comes weeks after California prohibited state agencies from conducting business with companies that do not offer equal health benefits for employees who are transgender. Massachusetts has proposed a law that would ban discrimination of transgender people in public accommodation. The new rules are expected to take effect in December.
