House Approves Bill

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state House has approved a Senate bill outlawing discrimination against transgender people in Delaware.

The bill was approved on a 24-17 vote Tuesday and now goes back to the Senate for consideration of a House amendment

The legislation adds gender identity to the list of protected nondiscrimination categories, including race, age, religion and sexual orientation. It also allows for enhanced penalties under Delaware's hate crimes law for targeting someone based on his or her gender identity.
