SB49 – Ending Homeless Discrimination

Senate Bill 49 bans discrimination based on a person’s housing status.   This bill establishes a “Homeless Individual’s Bill of Rights” that provides protections for individuals experiencing homelessness, including protections from discrimination while in public and while seeking access to housing, employment, and temporary shelter. This bill would empower the  Division of Human Relations and the State Human Relations Commission to enforce this act, similar to their roles with Delaware’s Equal Accommodations Law and Delaware’s Fair Housing Act.

Notice how there are now Republican co-sponsors.   They just love their right to discriminate, don’t they?

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 6 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO HOMELESS PERSONS.

  1. What the hell is going on down there in Dover? All these bills make sense and none seem designed to funnel money to banks and corporations.
