Charlie Crist: If elected, I’ll ban discrimination against LGBT state employees, contractors

ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. PETERSBURG -- Former Gov. Charlie Crist says he will sign five executive orders on his first day back in office if he's elected in November.

Crist made the announcement Tuesday. He said he would order agencies under his control to require that contractors pay employees at least $10.10 an hour.

He also said he would sign orders banning discrimination against gay and transgender employees at agencies under his control and their contractors, and another to require equal pay for women.

Contractors would be required to, whenever possible, hire Florida companies as subcontractors.

And Crist said he would sign an order to require agencies to provide public records at the lowest possible cost to the public.

Crist served as a Republican governor from 2007 to 2011 and is now running as a Democrat.
