2005 Equality California Opposed Legislation

A number of pieces of anti-LGBT legislation are introduced in the California Legislature each year. For the 2005-2006 legislative session, Equality California is officially opposed to these bills because of the negative impact they will have on the LGBT community and our familes.

AB 349 by Assemblymember Dennis Mountjoy (R-Monrovia) would prohibit HIV/AIDS education and prohibit educators from discussing the domestic partnership law.
AB 628 by Assemblymember Audra Strickland (R-Moorpark) would allow foster care parents to discriminate on religious grounds against children in their care.
ACA 3 by Assemblymember Ray Haynes (R-Temecula) and SCA 1 by Senator Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside) are anti-marriage constitutional amendments that would repeal all domestic partnership rights for gay and lesbian couples.
SB 235 by Senator Jeff Denham (R-Salinas) would criminalize the transmission of HIV without specific intent.
SB 1030 by Senator Dennis Hollingsworth (R-Murrieta) would allow businesses and public accommodations to discriminate based on religious  beliefs.
