Utah Passes Non-Discrimination Law

This month the Utah legislature -with the blessings of the Church of Latter-Day Saints- passed a law banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.  It also covers gender identity.  Unlike most such statutes, however, Utah's law does not cover public accommodations.  Thus, bias in employment and housing is now illegal, but Utah businesses can still deny services to individuals or couples based on their sexual orientation.
