California bans state workers from traveling to yet another state

California’s ban on state-funded travel grew to include a ninth state on Friday with Attorney General Xavier Becerra announcing new restrictions on public employees attending work-related events in Oklahoma.

Since 2017, California has forbidden state employees from traveling to states with laws that California leaders perceive to be discriminatory against gay and transgender people.

Becerra in a news release said he added restrictions on Oklahoma because the Southern state adopted a law that could allow adoption services agencies to refuse to work with gay and transgender people.
