Quote from: California bans travel to another state based on its 'discriminatory' LGBT adoption law
Add Oklahoma to the list of states to which California is banning state-funded and state-sponsored travel.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Friday that as a result of "discriminatory legislation" that became Oklahoma law last month, the western state will prohibit travel to its midwestern counterpart.

A 2017 California law requires that its attorney general keeps a list of states subject to a state travel ban because of "laws that authorize or require discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression," Becerra's office said in a statement.

"California taxpayers are taking a stand against bigotry and in support of those who would be harmed by this prejudiced policy." he said.

Oklahoma becomes the ninth state subject to the state-funded ban. Travel to Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas had previously been prohibited due to the 2017 law.

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

It would be easier if all States simply banned Ca. It may be the only message our Marxist leaders understand, when other States stop doing business in Ca.
I'd love to see Disney collapse, and I've no doubt, if Walt were alive today, he'd burn it down.

Don't we need California as an example of what not to do? The coast is A Clockwork Orange and the rest of it is actual reality.

More like a bad acid trip that doesn't want to end.

Not sure California can legally do that anyway. I know that they still have direct flights from the West Coast to the East Coast. I looked it up the other day: L.A. to RDU non-stop.

Nah, that's not what they are talking about, they're talking about govt related shit, that's why I said "why does any state deal us", they should tell Moonbeam to shove it up his ass.

Partisans say Trump embarrasses the country. It's people like Brown. He has people meet with the Chinese to discuss global warming when the Chinese know California has no bearing or power to discuss reducing emissions with a foreign country.

It isn't that he has no bearing or power, the US Constitution specifically prohibits it:
Quote
No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility. --- Article I, Section 10, Clause 1 of the US Constitution
