Just after midnight on Friday, the Connecticut Senate passed HB 6599 in a 20-16 vote without the discriminatory amendments proposed earlier. The House previously passed the bill on May 19th in a 77-62 vote. Governor Malloy is expected to sign the bill into law. This is a huge step forward for the LGBTI community. Congratulations to all who worked so hard to support this bill — and to the House and Senate members who voted in favor of it.
