County adds transgendered individuals to anti-bias law

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that two of Dryden's three county legislators voted to "protect the transgendered community and others from discrimination in employment, education, credit, public accommodation and housing."

The county legislature split by party, with eleven Democrats, including Martha Robertson and Michael Lane, supporting the measure and four Republicans, including George Totman, opposing it. The Journal quotes Dryden residents as pleased by the relief it will give them.
