SB 1146 (Lara) - Nondiscrimination in Colleges
Prohibits a person from being subjected to discrimination on the basis of sex in any program or activity conducted by a postsecondary educational institution that receives, or benefits from, state financial assistance or enrolls students who receive state student financial aid.
Limits the religious exemption from the Equity in Higher Education Act to certain educational programs and activities of a postsecondary educational institution that is controlled by a religious organization. The bill would specify that an individual who is denied equal rights or opportunities on the basis of gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation by a postsecondary educational institution that claims the Title IX exemption may seek appropriate remedies through civil action for violations of the Equity in Higher Education Act.
