[Video] Hearing testimony: Ga. LGBT employment bill about ‘liberty and justice for all’

State Rep. Karla Drenner (D-Atlanta) appealed to patriotism, faith and "liberty and justice for all" during a hearing this morning asking lawmakers to protect state workers from employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Drenner, the first openly gay member of the General Assembly, wants the bill to at least see a full committee vote before the legislature adjourns its annual session later this month.
