  1. Absolutely amazing for Nevada and a Republican too. Amazing!
    Shame about the minimum number of employees though.

      Yes indeed surely it should be for all regardless of how many employees.

    Equality and Republican.
    Now there’s a thing you don’t see or hear very often.

  3. The odd thing about this is that according to the actual founding principles of the Republican party this should be a normal position. But there are few principled Republicans. This good attitude is also likely to do a 180 the minute he runs for national office just like Romney or Giuliani. Always prudent to applaud good acts, but also prudent never to trust a Republican to stay a better course for long.

      the reason the republican party has changed so drastically is the stranglehold the religious right has on the party.

    All praise for Nevada and for their Governor! This is a very positive development.

    Wow a Republican Governor with some balls to treat us as equal (except on the gay marriage which under the Nevada and another 31 US states under their Constitutions, that says “is between a man and a woman”) – but does allow domestic partnerships for all couples regardless of gender of the partner, just like California next door!!!!

    There is another bill in Nevada that the legislators there passed he must also sign as well that will include gender identity/expression in accommodation and housing.

    Unfortunately, another bill did not pass the Senate Committee by just one vote that will include gender identity/expression in hate crime laws in Nevada.
