The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing to discuss LGBTQ rights legislation known as the Equality Act. Committee members heard from lawmakers and outside witnesses on the pros and cons of such legislation. Proponents were in favor of the bill’s outlawing of discrimination and the addition of federal legal rights for LGBTQ individuals. Opponents raised concerns with religious freedom and legal liability, and what the bill would mean for girl’s and women’s sports. Some Republican lawmakers who testified signaled interest in working with Democrats to address these concerns and the Equality Act. close
