Governor Bans NYS Agencies Travel to Mississippi

ALBANY – Yesterday, Governor Cuomo signed an executive order banning all non-essential state travel to Mississippi. The order requires all NYS agencies, departments, boards, and commissions to immediately review all requests for state funded or state sponsored travel to the state of Mississippi, and bar any such publicly funded travel that is not essential to the enforcement of the state law or public health and safety. The ban which takes effect immediately, follows Mississippi’s enactment of a discriminatory law that allows business and non-profit groups to refuse service to people on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Cuomo stated, “Discrimination is not a New York value. We believe our diversity is our greatest strength, and we will continue to reject the politics of division and exclusion.”
