*SACRAMENTO, Calif.California’s attorney general blocked state-funded travel to Texas and three other states on Thursday in response to what he considers anti-LGBT rights laws enacted this year.

Democratic Attorney General Xavier Becerra added Texas, Alabama, South Dakota and Kentucky to the list of places where state employee travel is restricted. Lawmakers passed legislation last year banning non-essential travel to states with laws that discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. North Carolina, Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee are already on the list.

[COLOR=#ff0000]California taxpayers’ money “will not be used to let people travel to states who chose to discriminate,” Becerra said.

It’s unclear what practical effect California’s travel ban will have. The state law contains exemptions for some trips, such as travel needed to enforce California law and to honor contracts made before 2017. Travel to conferences or out-of-state trainings are examples of trips that could be blocked. Becerra’s office couldn’t provide information about how often state employees have visited the newly banned states.



So it’s a ban on something that probably wouldn’t have happened, anyway… I’m sure Texas is just all torn up about it!


There are like seven or eight states now that Cali people are forbidden from using CA travel Funds in.


And I am glad that Tex is one of them…


Come ON, Moonbeam. Why isn’t Oklahoma also on your list???


Including the “United”…

Unbelievable. But – yep, believable. Sad.
