Iowa added to travel ban list

Iowa
On Oct. 4, 2019, the state of California added Iowa to Assembly Bill 1887. AB 1887 that restricts the use of State General Funds to pay for travel costs to states with laws that discriminate based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, or to states that have passed a law repealing such protections.

Effective Jan. 1, 2017, this law prohibits state-funded travel to a state that has passed a law after June 26, 2015, that (1) authorizes discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, or (2) voids or repeals existing state or local protections against such discrimination. The law identifies the University of California as an entity covered by the law.

The Attorney General maintains a list of states impacted by this legislation, as well as exceptions: https://oag.ca.gov/ab1887

  1. Alabama
