Hyland F. “Buddy” Fowler, Jr. (R-District 55) has HB 449, providing that any person convicted of violating a hunting, fishing, or trapping law may also be prohibited from hunting, fishing, or trapping for 1-5 years.

LGBT Virginians dealt major setback as bills die in House

By JOSH JANNEY, Winchester Star (Metered Paywall - 5 articles a month)

LGBT Virginians suffered a major setback Thursday afternoon as Republican lawmakers in the Virginia House of Delegates killed four bills that would have provided protections against discrimination from landlords and public employers. Virginia is one of 31 states that lacks non-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations. SB 202 would have prohibited discrimination in public employment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. SB 423 and HB 1547 would have added discrimination on the basis of one’s sexual orientation and gender identity as an unlawful housing practice.
