A bill to protect transgender people from job discrimination, introduced by Las Vegas politician Paul Aizley (pictured), cleared Nevada's general assembly on Monday.

The legislation passed 29-13, with 26 Democrats and three Republicans supporting it. The bill will move on to the senate, where passage looks possible, according to supporters. Republican governor Brian Sandoval has not indicated whether he would sign the bill into law.

Nevada politicians have also introduced a bill that would ban transgender discrimination in housing and public accommodations and one that would increase sentences for those who commit hate crimes against transgender people. There are an estimated 25,000 transgender people in Nevada.
