Governor Terry McAuliffe recently signed Executive Order No. 61, designed to combat sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.  Specifically, the order states that the state of Virginia will only grant bids valued over $10,000 to state contractors with anti-discrimination policies against certain protected categories, including sexual orientation and gender identity.  The Order applies to any contracts that have not progressed to the stage where a change in contracting requirements would adversely impact completion of the project.
