Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, a Republican, signed into law bills prohibiting discrimination in housing (SB368) and public accommodations (SB331) on the basis of gender identity or expression.
SB368 prohibits discrimination in housing and certain other transactions involving real property on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
SB331 relates to public accommodations, revising provisions relating to unlawful discrimination based on sex and gender identity or expression in places of public accommodation.
Last week he signed AB211, a bill prohibiting discrimination in employment on the basis of gender identity or expression.
Taken together, the three new laws represent fairly comprehensive anti-discrimination protections for trans people in Nevada.
However, as housing, employment and public accommodations were each handled in separate bills, the outcome could have been less desirable.
The laws will go into effect on October 1.
