The Puerto Rican House of Representatives today (May 24) approved anti-discrimination legislation that would protect LGBT people in employment, housing, governmental services, public accommodations and private entities.
The Senate approved the bill in a 15-11 vote last week, and Gov. Alejandro García Padilla has vowed to sign the measure into law.
Also today, the House passed legislation to add protections for sexual orientation, marital status and gender identity to the domestic violence law. That measure is now headed to the Senate.
