A new poll finds that 71 percent of Marylanders support proposed legislation that would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodation.

The Goucher Poll, conducted by the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Baltimore-based Goucher College, found that of those supporting, 39 percent strongly favor the measure. Of the 20 percent who oppose the legislation, only 10 percent strongly oppose.  The bill was approved March 4 in the Senate and is awaiting action in the House of Delegates.
