They apparently did this to protest the treatment and discrimination of the LGBT community. Thoughts? The other three states of Kentucky, Alabama, and South Dakota. Here are some quotes from the article:
"California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) will bar state employees from business trips to four states after those states passed measures limiting the rights of LGBT people."
"State legislators in Texas, Alabama and South Dakota this year passed new laws allowing adoption or foster parent agencies to refuse service to LGBT families. A new Kentucky law would allow student organizations at state schools to block LBGT people from membership."
“ 'While the California [Department of Justice] works to protect the rights of all our people, discriminatory laws in any part of our country send all of us several steps back,' Becerra said in a statement. 'That’s why when California said we would not tolerate discrimination against LGBTQ members of our community, we meant it.' "
"The California law still allows some employees to travel to states on the banned list, for special exempted purposes like collecting tax revenue, engaging in litigation or to complete on-the-job training. It also allows employees who must appear in a banned state to participate in meetings or training to obtain grant funding."
