Stumbo Backs Fairness Bill

The Lane Report

House Speaker Greg Stumbo has co-sponsored a bill that would protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees from workplace discrimination. Stumbo is one of 18 cosponsors backing the proposed legislation filed by Louisville Rep. Mary Lou Marzian.

He says that his support for fairness coincides with his duty to uphold the constitution.

“I’ve never stood by and allowed people’s rights to be trampled in that manner. I don’t believe in it. I believe the constitution is exactly what it is... it requires that everybody be treated the same way regardless of your creed, color, national origin or sexual preference,” said Stumbo.

Stumbo believes there’s increased support in his chamber for the bill compared to previous years.
