Jumbo Shrimp, Military Intelligence, and “Good, Minimal Protections”

From the Baltimore Sun:

 Bill supporters acknowledged a better plan would have included public accommodations, but Del. Kirill Reznik, a Montgomery County Democrat, defended it as providing “good, minimal protections.”

I guess I should give the delegate props for giving me a new example of an oxymoron.

On a positive note though, the BaltSun makes some attempt at legislative analysis:

According to the legislative analysis, 13 states and the District of Columbia have anti-discrimination laws concerning transgendered people. Baltimore and Montgomery County already have local laws similar to the House plan, although those both include public accommodations provisions.

As do the state laws – but I guess journalism on this issue has to start somewhere.
