According to the Human Rights Campaign, The Every Child Deserves a Family Act (ECDFA) would prohibit any child welfare agency receiving federal financial assistance from discriminating against any potential foster or adoptive family on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status. In addition, ECDFA would prevent discrimination against any foster youth because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Do you support the Every Child Deserves a Family Act?

Candidate declined to answer.

Rep. Lee’s rewritten bill (formerly H.R. 1305) addresses the serious problem of discrimination in the use of criminal and civil laws against people who test positive for HIV. It would create incentives and support for states to reform their existing policies that use the criminal law to target people living with HIV for felony charges and severe punishment for behavior that is otherwise legal (such as consensual sex between adults) or that poses no measurable risk of HIV transmission. Thankfully, we modernized our HIV criminal laws in Nevada, do you support this effort at the federal level?

Candidate declined to answer.
