The Senate wants to wait and see what the House does with its bill banning discrimination in public schools before moving forward with a similar House-passed bill.

The Senate Education and Workforce Development Committee Tuesday voted 5-0 to re-refer House Bill 383, which would prohibit discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion, creed, color, marital status, disability or national origin.

By re-referring the bill, it would be available next year if Senate Bill 263 does not pass or is vetoed. The full Senate will have to vote to re-refer the bill.
