Breakthrough on transgender rights bill?

The Lowell Sun reports on the transgender bill to be debated on May 12th according to¬†Senate President Stanley Rosenberg who said,¬†“I am glad to hear the Joint Committee on the Judiciary plans to release the Senate and House Public Accommodations bills. The Senate has been prepared to debate this since November, and we will go forward as planned on May 12th with our debate. It is imperative that legislators get a bill to the Governor’s desk as quickly as possible to end discrimination under the law for all transgender individuals. I thank Senate Chair Will Brownsberger, Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, and the other members of the committee for their leadership in moving this bill forward.”
