Public Hearings on Expansion of PA Civil Rights Bill

The Pennsylvania House State Government Committee has set two public hearings on HB1400.

That bill extends the right to freedom from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodation to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity or expression".

The following public hearings are set on this important bill:

Date: Thursday, October 4
Time: Noon
Location: Cathedral of Learning (on the University of Pittsburgh campus)
Room CL 2017
5th Ave & Bigelow

Date: Friday, October 5, 2007
Time: 1 pm
Location: Raymond M. Blasco, M. D. Memorial Library
160 East Front St.
