I support the proposed non-discrimination provisions

State approved adoption agencies should not be allowed to discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability and family status when considering placement of a child. The best interests of the child should be the sole factor in deciding whether a child should be placed with a prospective foster care or adoptive parent or parents
