Utah, USA: State Senator Says LGBT Anti Discrimination Bill is Dead

Utah MapAfter being proposed for a fifth straight year, a bill offering limited protections to LGBT citizens was killed once again in the Utah state Senate. LGBTQ Nation reports:

The legislation has been introduced in the Legislature for five years in a row, but this year’s proposal went further than any before. Thursday marked the first time the measure had passed out of a legislative committee with approval. “It’s a breakthrough piece of legislation,” said Sen. Jim Dabakis (D-Salt Lake City), a co-sponsor of the legislation who in 2011 became the first openly gay person to lead a state party in Utah. “We have had a huge leap this year toward evolving,” Dabakis said Monday afternoon.

But they say it did get farther this time than ever before.
