"Mm hmm. Not surprisingly, Yeah, well, I mean, you know, adoption, Fostering parenthood generally has been a considerable battleground. In many states. Recently and Have a story here, Um At the Supreme Court. U S. Supreme Court has refused to hear an Indiana suit over lesbian couples on birth certificates. Indiana Lesbian couples will be able to include both people's names on their Children's birth certificates after a decision by the U. S Supreme Court today. Court decided not to hear a lawsuit over the issue that began back in 2016. Uh, The Indiana birth certificate lists only the names of the mother and father, eight lesbian couples sued, seeking the right to include both the birth mother and her partner. A couple said denying them. Their place on the birth certificate cost them rights and benefits. And while the state argued lesbian couples should go through the adoption process that, couples said That was both lengthy and costly. Both federal District Court and the seventh Circuit Court of Appeals cited with the lesbian couples. But Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill took the case to the U. S. Supreme Court, he argued. The that Indiana was following quote basic biology in only, including birth mother and father on a burst certificate. But the Supreme Court refused to hear the case leaving in place. The appellate court decision, which reported repudiated Bill's position, so Um, you know, this is refreshing. I got to say, we have lately had many instances now off what had been somewhat the doom and gloom expectations of a arch conservative Supreme Court and its potential. Influence on decisions related to LGBT Q issues as well as other political issues, Um, not necessarily manifesting those arch conservative viewpoints. On instead either letting stand or refusing to hear cases that Fall in favor, then of the LGBT Q or liberal or progressive. Position. E think that's really pretty pretty cool there. I have to agree. Um So we're talking about courts, right? Is this thing going on in Michigan? Um So The court ruled that Oh, I'm sorry. Michigan court has ruled that businesses can refuse gay and by people, but not trans people. There's the lead Okay, You know, philosophically that Z Go ahead. Uh, The state civil rights law includes neither sexual orientation nor gender identity. But the Michigan Civil Rights Commission voted in 2018 to interpret the state's ban on discrimination. On the basis of sex to include discrimination against LGBT Q people and interpretation that federal courts have agreed with, and that was later used by the Supreme Court in both stock V. Clayton County this past year to rule that federal law already bans job discrimination against LGBT Q people. State Court of Claims Judge Christopher Emery issued a summary judgment and to discrimination cases, one based on anti gay discrimination and the other on anti trans discrimination. One case involved Rouch World A wedding venue that refused to host weddings for same sex couples. And the other involved uprooted electrolysis, a hair removal service. Great name uprooted nice, their hair removal service that refused to serve a transgender client. The lawsuits were combined into one Murray reference to state Supreme Court in bar bore The Department of Social Services, where the court ruled that the state's ban on discrimination because of sex does not ban discrimination against gay and bisexual people. Marie wrote quote. Whether barbers reasoning is no longer valid in light of both stock fee. Clayton County is a matter for the court of Appeals, not this court. So It kind of sounds like kicking the can down down the road to me. Um But the state Supreme Court has not yet ruled on anti transgender discrimination. So Murray referred to several federal rulings, including both stock, which Murray said held quote. That an employer violates title seven when it treat an employee born male but who now identifies this female differently than an employee born female. That type of dissimilar treatment the court held was discrimination because of sex unquote. State civil rights legislation, Marie said, is similar enough to apply the same reasoning, so the case about anti transgender discrimination can proceed. While the case about anti gay discrimination cannot Okay. Yeah. So, uh, well, we can already see that this is going to go on to appeals. In fact, I think I just saw They're at it is being appealed. Yes. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to appeal case involving Well, yeah. So, uh, Kind of weird. Um But But I mean, you know, that's kind of You know, that is really interesting. The idea that, um You know, on the basis of sex versus sexual orientation, right? There can be no discrimination or lack of discrimination nor, yeah, that's that's really I have some work to do. Yeah, right. I mean, doesn't everybody But yeah. See how this one goes. One or two. Wait. No, they were combined so Yeah. All right, miss again. Well, speaking of I suppose trans related. In this case issues. Um Former Democratic primary running person. We'll see covered. Huh? Representative From why, uh Well, this news from the Los Angeles Bleed another reporting. Right wing media outlets have earned more than two million Facebook interactions on content, praising a new bill introduced by Representative Tulsi covered Uh, we had representative Mark Wain Mullen of Tahoma that would prevent trans athletes from competing as their authentic Selves in school sports.

This goes back to two thousand fourteen when Flint's which water supply from the city of Detroit to the Flint River in order to save money the city was facing financial issues and was under the control of a state appointed emergency manager. Still State environmental officials advised flint not to apply corrosion control measures to the water. Even as it was flowing through old pipes city residents started to notice an issue with the water. It was discolored had a bad taste. It was causing rashes and a lot of. Other issues at the time local and state officials continued to insist that it was safe. It wasn't until outside researchers tested the water and found elevated levels of lead that residents particularly children were urged not to drink. The water residents had to switch over to bottled water for more than a year and lawsuits filed against the state a couple years later, Michigan Civil Rights Commission determined that the water crisis had its roots in systemic racism and was a quote complete failure of government in a city where most residents are people of Color,

"Speak for. Municipalities, and in many cases, this is a non partisan shop. He speaks for Republican mayors. He was speaks for Democrat mayors, but they've all got the same problem right now is big holes in their budget because of the unanticipated costs. Of coded that affect your police. Your fire your roads, every kind of municipal service that you can imagine, And they're also facing by one estimate. On an average loss of about 1/3 of the income they rely on to provide those services to you. Now, you could be as hostile as you want to be, but they are either going to cut your services or cut your budgets, and I understand that maybe they should do that first before putting their hand out to the federal government. Or the federal government can help them. They're asking for $375 billion nationwide to effective municipalities that are hardest hit by this and they should have to justify their need before they get that money, and they should have to be very transparent about where that money is going so that this isn't being used to backfill pensions. That were too generous and to pie in the sky when they offered them 20 and 30 years ago. Nevertheless, it's going to be a pay me now or pay me later, kind of a prospect here as they deal With the budget holes. Let's get to Elizabeth and Royal Oak. Elizabeth. Good afternoon and welcome to the show. Good afternoon. I feel bad for the local government stuff this way, But let's go to the top. Let's go to Governor Wittner. She keeps saying, Oh, we have no money. We have no money. But what did she do? Yesterday, She created what two new board. She's increasing government. She's spending more money. We're tightening of the belt for anybody. I mean, God, you know, Luckily, I haven't lost my job. But I've lost my bonuses. I understand asking for other, You know other candles? No. Is one. Okay? Tighten my belt. Let's look if you know what's really going on already. It is it's physician Heal thyself. And you raised a really important point. First of all, both of those things that she proposed yesterday are are duplicative. OK, we already have boards and commissions that handle those issues. The Michigan Civil Rights Commission is where you go if you see and feel that you have endured and inequity. So you raised a really important point there that she's talking out of both sides of her mouth. And let's also be clear that many of these things are self inflicted. They are The things she's done that have shut down businesses and shut them down both too early and then left them closed too late. So are we to ask the federal government? It's why ask till Dan Gil Martin about that, because I think it's a legitimate question. Are we to ask the federal government To fix our self inflicted wounds. That guy, But it's also appeared your budgets exact. Same as last year, most state budgets increase automatically by what 456%. Yeah, that's out the window beforehand. I mean, what if they come on? No. But just just to be clear. We've already cut in the state of Michigan that the governor and the Republican leadership of the Legislature worked out a $2.2 billion Budget deal that called for severe cutbacks in a number of different areas. Some of those places were back filled with revenues that were left over from the first cares Act. That went unused, and they also gave us credit for flexibility to backfill those things. But now comes the harder stuff. 3.3 billion without any federal money, and that's why they are asking for more and they're not saying That went with it. We still won't have to make cuts. We will Okay. But even you know what? How much is this implicit bias training costing up And where is that money coming from? And where is it going To? That's a really, really good question and art are Don't we already have diversity programs and inclusiveness programs built and baked into state government. Most businesses do and I believe that we do. And if you find there's one in Michigan Health and Human Services Department, they've got a whole page about the diversity and inclusion prospects so Yeah, There's just so much here, Elizabeth that she she's She's talking out of both sides of your mouth. And I don't blame anybody. First of all, kudos to you for for witnessing it and calling it out. And secondly, for being upset about it. Don't blame me a bit. Thanks for your call. It's go Teo ST Clair Shores and Bill with some thoughts on this so called education program in training. Hello, Bill. Maggie, I thank you for having me on appreciated. Thank you. Um, and basically, yeah, I'm looking at it. We're all scratching your head because, you know, she did this back with the health care workers back when and sort of doubling down. But if he's calling a training, but in essence, it could be re education programs as we're not thinking the way she wants us to think, And it seems scarier than Anything is you know, somebody in government is seeking to re educate or re train all of our thought process very distant. I I share your Ah, the fact you find that disturbing bill, especially in light of the fact it was just a Zay said yesterday I heard from somebody that said, You know what? If she wants to see that I carry biases. I understand that I'm a self aware person. But don't blame my parents for it. Don't say it's because Mom and dad didn't raise me right? Because then basically you're calling them and racist And I'm not going to put up with that. Thanks for your call. Let's go to Gary in West Bloomfield with some thoughts on all these and whatever else is on his mind. Very well. Let's start a bobbin Clarkston. Oh, did we lose Gary? That's too big, OK? Bob and Clarkston. Good afternoon and welcome to you. Yeah. Hi, guy. The only problem with keeping the money from going to any kind of pension bailout is you need them to make their normal pension contribution first. And then they could use the money because you got one big pot here. You've got 50 items or 15,000 items in the budget and by giving them a lump sum of cash. They're going to use X amount of money to contribute to the pension. Anyways, as then they're going to just you know the federal money fill in what's missing. You know they can't or or they can cut their budgets. They Khun Duke. What good administrators do Well, yeah. How many? I don't know how to do that. You know, when I hit the municipal level, I think they're certainly more responsible than most And and Ah, but that's the that's what you elect him to do, And here's the thing, And this is why I think getting the direct payments from the federal government of the city's works. There's greater accountability and you and I can stay on their backs and make sure that that money is spent appropriately. It's just like leaving accountability and I still do. Because she cuts 115 million from the state police. And then she tells him to go out and do more enforcement. What am I missing? Well, what you're missing is that was backfilled with federal money. The the she did not be fund of police and of the group that put that out, should be not just ashamed of themselves. They should be thoroughly discredited. Because it was total crap that was done as part of the budget deal with Republicans and the Republicans. There's no way they were going to cut funding to the state police that was backfield with federal money. The police in the corrections both came out of this. Pretty dog gone Good, Given the budget challenges that we saw. So if that just beware of the misinformation out there about that, because they were claiming she defunded police. If she did, she did it with Republican help, And you and I both know that that was never gonna happen. All right, let's go to Jim and New Baltimore before we have to get a break here, Jim, Welcome to the show. Hey, guys, How are you? I'm good, sir. I got to tell you one of the most beautiful little farm you've ever seen. Your life appear in Franken with Chinese enders will learn more about it. A couple of couple of minutes here. Oh, yeah, And it's a beautiful day for it, That's for sure. And you know anything that any programs I see like she did yesterday. In anything I hear of that comes from that side of government, state, Local or federal? I just can't trust. I mean, where is the money really going? What is really for And you know, I agree with you 100% about Federal monitoring and anything coming from the federal level because it could be it could be monitored properly. And, um, you know, and the thing is, it's like Um, you know, I worked for a local company. I won't say their name, but it's the same. We were hit with the same kind of thing. We had to take a pay cut..

"Leftovers. There is broad agreement on both sides of the all need. I expected today's action to be a big bipartisan vote on some partisan showdown. But over the last few days spreading something happened, the democratic leader and several of his colleagues have stood up. And so they want to block the Senate for beaver and considering legislation now never mind that it includes legislation co sponsored by the Senate Democrats last congress in spite of all that some Democrats have now threatened to block us for me. We've taken this legislation up later today. What a majority of Democrats, including those who reject voted against the Bill to protest, the government shutdown which raises the question of whether they will continue to vote down the new legislation until the shutdown is over and said, if addressing the shutdown Republicans are defending the Bill and attacking the BBS movement calling it on semitic a position that various civil rights organizations, criticized Republican Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado attack, democratic congresswoman Rashid at leaves tweet that criticized the timing off the Bill, it's regrettable. It's unfortunate. It's horrible. It's also part of new and disturbing trend that we see from some of our colleagues and the democratic caucus because as we noted in our letter several members of the house of representatives have now publicly endorsed BBS and have not been condemned by Senator Schumer and other democratic leaders. We saw the manifestation of this dangerous trend two days ago when? Democratic Representative issued a statement alleging that the senators who introduced the Bill before us today, myself included, forget what country they represent. This is reprehensible charge of dual loyalty utterly unbefitting of a sitting member of congress, and we all need to come together to condense such vile. Insinuations Tellabs tweet stated, quote, they forgot what country they represent. This is a you S. We're boycotting is a right and part of our historical fight for freedom and equality. Maybe.

She posted the tweet echoing estimator statement made by Senator Bernie Sanders. California's senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein have both stated they do not support BBS, but are aware of the concerns raised about the anti BDO measure's constitutionality this week, they reaffirmed its position.

Civil rights groups are celebrating a new directive from Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer Dan's discrimination against LGBT people who worked for the state or its contractors who or who service state properties. Suzanne Potter reports the director of specifically forbids discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity Aaron not with the group equality. Michigan says the move will affect thousands of people executive branch employees aren't going to have to worry about discrimination hurting, their ability which himselves conservation officer kit harass same sex partners at their camping in our state parts later this summer for construction companies as an example won't be allowed to discriminate in the hiring workers quit. Moore's move is consistent with the position taken last may by the Michigan civil rights commission, which interpreted the state's existing prohibition on sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity. However current state law specifically the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act, which originally passed in nineteen seventy six does not include LGBTQ protections in its ban on discrimination in employment housing education. Ended public accommodations and services not says the legislature has been dragging its feet on adding LGBTQ protections for decades. And thanks now is the time to act earth. They should adopt schools in the house and the Senate to protect their own employees from anti LGBT discrimination and the should at long last expand the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act to make it fully inclusive for all together, including those at the community in December a coalition of civil rights and health groups sent a letter asking what Murtagh support a number of policy changes those include budgeting more money for family planning and supporting a legal challenge to a twenty fifteen state law that allowed foster care and adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ people on the basis of religious liberty for public news service. I'm Suzanne Potter, California. Governor Gavin Newsom is responded to a threat by President Trump to withhold federal money intended to help the state cope with wildfires. Saying residents should not be victims of partisan bickering. Trump tweeted Federal Emergency Management agency, FEMA funds would be withheld unless the state improves it's forest management practices. Unisom responded by saying, quote, disaster, and recovery are no time for politics, unquote, California, Senator Dianne Feinstein said in a statement that quote is absolutely shocking for President Trump to suggest he would deny disaster assistance to communities destroyed by wildfire attacking victims as yet another low for this president unquote, California, Senator Kamala Harris said, quote, we should work together to mitigate these fires by combatting climate change, not playing politics by threatening to withhold money from survivors of a deadly natural disaster, unquote. Meanwhile, northern California's giant, utility company Pacific Gas and electric is exploring possible, bankruptcy because of those fires. The utility giant is facing the possibility of billions of dollars in liability from the massive wildfires that may be related to its equipment. PG knees. Troubles put at risk energy prices state climate change goals and reimbursement for victims of wildfires. Christopher Martinez reports what to do with PG and E the northern California. Utility giant has been battered by possible liabilities for a series of massive wildfires that have left billions of dollars in damages PG and E stocks have tumbled into junk bond status. Three top executives are resigning at the end of the month and two small natural gas suppliers have reportedly limited sales to PTSD because of concerns about the utility companies ability to pay them the company. Even reportedly considering filing for bankruptcy. Michael Laura is a senior scholar at Stanford University focusing on climate and energy policy. He says PG and E is kind of teetering is really important for affordability of energy for Californians. It's really important for achieving threatens potentially our air quality and climate goals. And it's also important if we care as a state about seeing ensuring that the wildfire victims are fully compensated for their losses because if PG need does go bankrupt, many of those victims will receive pennies on the dollar in a or, you know, sense on the on the dollar. I don't know how many sets, but it won't be good governor Gavin Newsom addressed the issue of possible. Bankruptcy Tuesday at a news conference saying he's working on the issue. We want a healthy utility gonna utility. It's investing in the future low carbon green, growth strategies, that's an. An ideal world that's not the case today. And so we are we are addressing that issue in real time. In fact, this morning at eight AM we had a meeting on that. Exact topic bankruptcy is only one possibility. Another is a state bailout to keep PG and E solvent are restructuring the company perhaps by splitting electric and gas divisions into different companies or even a state takeover to create a publicly owned utility company. Instead of an investor owned utility Stanford says neither restructuring nor state takeover of PTSD solves the real problem of reducing wildfires. Some advocates agree with that point. Andy spat is a spokesperson with the utility perform network or turn. Perspective. The most important thing is how do we stop PG need from starting fires? And whether it's a bankruptcy or a bailout that teaching chooses to deal with it's financial problems. Neither of them will make consumers any safer. She says bankruptcy could raise difficulties us, but the state should not make policy to try.

All those breaches with all these different department stores and all that is something that happens a lot more than people think and also now with with his heart where a lot of. The the worms that hack into the Simpsons are baked into the hardware now just waiting for. The operators? To activate them so I think that's why President Trump, was trying to at thing with the Chinese phone maker how why why. Maybe a month ago, I'm. Not, pronouncing that right but? He wasn't gonna Allowed a the cell. Phones to be sold here, you remember that guy Z. t. e. p. p. e. t. e. thing. And he, ended up actually he was all. Over the map on that but yeah because they were a cyber threat they were bad actors and they also violated our sanctions. And so they were They were bad guys on a number of different areas there but apparently, the Chinese appealed to Mr. Trump that it was killing. Off the company and that was threatening to full net would have resulted. In some, real economic hardship according to them. And so I guess we've given them a break for. The time being but You know I I've had, a? Guy named Joe Welsh? That was turning me onto this probably five to six years ago trying to get someone, to listen to him and saying we're not doing enough for? It, I gotta tell ya backup generator. Makes a whole heck of a lot of sense given when. You know when you read something like this right you remember that incident I think it was airport down in. Atlanta or the Atlanta electrical grid system being offline maybe two or three four. Months ago or something like that yeah they always say that, it will it. Was a squirrel and the transformer or something like that you, know the excuse that it wasn't that it wasn't cyber hacking that it wasn't any kind of an attack I'm getting to, the point where I'm not buying a lot of these excuses. I think that there in many cases embarrassed that they got they got, hit We'll see what comes of this but I. Would hope that they would we would make this a higher priority in the. Future arms talks key thanks for your insights and your your, help on this That's all we. Have time for on that, but we will maintain vigilance on, it and keep you up to date.

Comes days after attorney general Bill, Schutte issued an opinion saying the commission overstepped and that the panels take on the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act conflicts with the original, intent of the legislature as expressed in plain language with more. On that we are happy to have with us Stephanie white Stephanie from equality Michigan the executive director of Michigan civil rights commission joins us now Stephanie good, morning good morning Steve thanks for having me it's always a pleasure give us an overall view as to. Exactly what. Is, going on at a at the heart of the matter is our state's ability to recognize sexual, orientation as. Well as as as a right well what did recognizes is that when we talk about people being discriminated against. Based on their sexual orientation or their gender identity kind of like you know how we. Dress, and who we date and all of that. Kind of stuff is at the heart of that is actually sex discrimination because you can't discriminate Eight against a person based on their sexual orientation without considering their sex and it's kind of a growing awareness in, the law that, has been growing you know for for more than, a decade across the country and our civil rights commission has basically caught up to that to that understanding as well Throughout the, nation right now Stephanie has become quite the hot button that's right yeah so. There's federal courts have, ruled including, the federal court the sixth. Circuit court that over overseas Michigan law there's? Even. Kind of come to this recognition and so this is not? Something, New Orleans new for us here in Michigan but it's not something that's a civil rights. Commission kind of came up with they're just learning from you know federal courts around the country how many states do you have, the data Stephanie how many states right now recognize sexual orientation and identity. Identity yeah thirteen states across the country who expressly outlawed discrimination based on those, characteristics in, their legislature but what's unique about this is actually, Michigan is the first state in the country to treat sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination Under our sex prohibition are. Prohibition on sex discrimination so we're the. First state. To. Kind of attack it from this angle like I said, there are searching other, states around the, country who, expressly outlawed in in their laws the transgender. Angle in our country right now Stephanie you say under President Trump it kind, of came to a head when the president mandated that transgenders we're not welcome. In the armed forces, is this, in any way an extension. Of that and to take it a step? Further. Has that started any momentum? In this regard one way or? The. Other well I think it points out just how important it is to for our government. To expressly protect all Michiganders' from discrimination the people are still vulnerable to this you know in fact quality Michigan has takes cases From Michiganders' who've been discriminated against and, we, probably get, ten to twelve, new cases every week where people come to us because they've been fired from their jobs for being gay or they can't find a place, to rent an apartment because they're transgender and so you know, it's very I think it has put this? In the spotlight to say? It's, an important issue that we still need to deal with and I'm really thankful that our civil rights commission takes their. Responsibility to protect all Michiganders' very seriously. Just recently, in the, news, a national pharmacy chain Denied there was a pharmacist that denied a transgender woman a, necessary drug that she needed for..

"Okay so here's my thinking on it i mean there's been a lot of frustration at the michigan civil rights commission and department of civil rights and equal employment opportunity commission which is the federal counter part because lgbt people have no rights and as we all know you cannot become married if you're gay but you can still be fired if you're gay and people don't have to mince any words about it it's just flatly not illegal you could be working at a company as a male six months later you've become a female you can be fired for that so people we we had a case like that in garden city and they wanted to federal appeals court level so they rent one on yes they did they went on a very specific point and it was it goes back to an old sexdiscrimination called case against pricewaterhouse which says you cannot is evoked gender stereotypes so you a female doesn't have to be looking female so you are correct there is that case out of the sixth circuit so i guess my question is with that victory at the six circuit is this going to be coming anyway from from the federal down you know it hasn't yet this little first case we had here that bubbled up from our local court downtown is the one of the few openings in the door i've always wondered as a civil rights lawyer how it can be that gender discrimination sex harassment are illegal but somebody sexual preferences discriminating against them on that basis or because they become a different gender why wouldn't that be encompassed it seems like it's virtually identical to discrimination based on gender or gender preference but the courts have you know just like with gay marriage it seems it was a long period of time and then one day kind of the floodgates opened started changing and then finally the us supreme court so i think yes i think this this is another step on the road where we are on to getting some insurance of civil rights for people that are gay is you know i i guess my fear is and i've heard from listeners that has said look we don't like discrimination either but if.
