Legislature Backs State Legislation Regarding Housing of Transgender and Intersex Inmates

Thursday, September 20, 2018

The Legislature, without dissent (Chair Martha Robertson was excused), urged the New York State Senate to immediately pass legislation, already approved by the Assembly, regarding the housing of transgender and intersex inmates.  The legislation would authorize the sheriff to assign a transgender or intersex inmate to any facility housing unit, to ensure the inmate’s health and safety and is consistent with facility management and security.
