On Sept. 27, 2016, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill No. 1887. This new law prohibits the use of state funds for travel to states that have passed a law after June 26, 2015, that (1) authorized discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression; or (2) repealed existing state or local protections against such discrimination.
AB 1887 expressly identifies the University of California as an entity covered by the law, and campus departments must comply with this new rule effective Jan. 1, 2017. The list of the states where travel restrictions apply can be found on the State Attorney General's website: https://oag.ca.gov/ab1887.
AB 1887 provides a number of exceptions (see the link below for details) and does not affect travel that is paid for or reimbursed using non-state funds. It also does not apply to travel expenses that were incurred before Jan. 1, 2017.
