Kansas is to reinstate anti-discriminatory measures


Kansas governor-elect Laura Kelly has promised to reinstate LGBT+ anti-discrimination protections in the state as the former Governor Sam Brownback stated that there was no need in anti-discriminatory measures on the basis of sexuality and gender identity in 2015.The LGBT anti-discrimination measures were first established in 2007 via an executive order signed by Governor Kathleen Sebelius, and they protected state workers from harassment, firing or discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Brownback rescinded Sebelius’ order, claiming that it was unilaterally creating “a new protected class.” “I am planning to actually have an executive order drafted before I take office,” Kelly said, speaking at a press conference following her midterm election win last week. The Democrat won by a margin of more than 45,000 votes, earning 47.8 percent of the vote against Kris Kobach’s 43.3 percent, so now she is the Governor who plan s to create a team off leaders, united despite their personal and political views being different.
