Gay people would be protected from being fired based on their sexual orientation under a bill signed into law Friday by Governor Bill Ritter.
This is the same type of bill that former governor Bill Owens vetoed. Twice! Ritter has been a breath of fresh air as Governor. I am proud to stand up and say that I voted for him. Sure, he’s made a couple of questionable moves (vetoing the union bill, for example). But even then, it appeared that Ritter acted because of what he believes to be right, not due to external pressures.
I love living in a blue state!
