With less than a month remaining in office, Ohio Gov. John Kasich — a prominent critic of President Trump within his own party — signed on Wednesday an executive order barring anti-trans discrimination in the state workforce, instituting the first transgender statewide protections in Ohio. The order, titled Executive Order 2018-12-K, bars discrimination on the basis of numerous protected categories, including sexual orientation and gender identity, revising policy for the first time to bar anti-trans discrimination.
