BREAKING: Louisiana governor signs executive order prohibiting workplace discrimination against LGBT state employees.

BREAKING: Louisiana governor signs executive order prohibiting workplace discrimination against LGBT state employees. April 13, 2016

Here’s something happy before I hit the road for voice lessons:

Today, Governor John Bel Edwards signed an executive order providing employment protections for state employees and employees of state contractors on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, political affiliation, disability, or age. This executive order also prohibits discrimination in services provided by state agencies, and recognizes an exemption for churches and religious organizations.

Similar executive orders were signed by former Governors Edwin Edwards and Kathleen Blanco and are in place around the country. There is currently no state law protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) Louisianans from employment discrimination.

There’s a governor who likes having businesses set up shop in his state.
