Senate Bill 77- Prohibiting Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation

In recent years, many states and municipalities across the United States have sought to enact statutes and ordinances to include "sexual orientation" amongst the classes traditionally protected from discrimination. West Virginia Senate Bill 77, introduced on February 15, 2017, similarly seeks to amend the West Virginia Human Rights Act and West Virginia Fair Housing Act to include "sexual orientation" as a protected class and prohibit discrimination in employment, places of public accommodation, and housing on the basis of "sexual orientation."
