The Albany County Legislature unanimously passed an anti-discrimination law that protects transgender people on June 10, 2013. Yes, all the Democrats and Republicans. The bill was cosponsored by Shawn Morse, Frank Commisso, Noelle Kinsch. “This is about basic human rights,” said Morse, County Legislature Chairman. “We all deserve to be treated equally under the law and to pursue our happiness without fear of discrimination.” “Protecting the Citizens of Albany County is our job,” said Frank Commisso, Majority Leader, “We are all equal, and it saddens me that people have been discriminated against for just being themselves.”
