HOUSING AND EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION. SEXUAL ORIENTATION. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Measure prohibits housing and employment discrimination based on sexual orientation (heterosexuality, bisexuality, homosexuality) under provisions of the Fair Employment and Housing Act, as it now exists or is amended in future. Retains exemption from this law for non-profit religious associations and corporations, and for housing operated by religious, fraternal or charitable associations or corporations under specified circumstances. Declares that this law does not require or permit quotas or other such affirmative action, and does not invalidate employment policies which benefit married couples if such policies are otherwise legal. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Annual state administrative costs up to $500,000 for Department of Fair Employment and Housing; unknown fiscal effect on local courts, depending on measure's effect on number of civil suits filed.
