California law bans state funded and state sponsored

Post by DallasDimeBags » Wed Jun 28, 2017 2:48 pm

travel to 8 states.

California's Attorney General said the state is pulling the plug on state-sponsored travel to Alabama and three other places - Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas. The addition brings the total number of states included in California's travel ban to eight, with Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee placed on the off-limits list earlier this year.

While the economic implications of the travel ban are unclear, its most immediate impact could come this fall on the football field.

First, what is California's travel ban?

California's law, AB 1887, went into effect Jan. 1, 2017. It prohibits state-funded and state-sponsored travel to states with laws that authorize or require discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or same-sex couples.

What does it cover?

The travel ban law prohibits state-funded travel for those working at California agencies, departments boards, authorities and commissions including those associated with the University of California, the Board of Regents of the University of California, and the California State University.

The law puts the responsibility for deciding what states are added to the travel ban on California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
