A panel of business leaders hosted by Utah State Sen. Ben McAdams said the lack of state
laws forbidding anti-LGBT discrimination hurts their companies’ ability to attract employees to
the state. Brandon Pace, general counsel for eBay, said his company may have to consider
expanding elsewhere if Utah doesn’t enact laws that would make LGBT employees more
comfortable living there. Polls show Utah residents are overwhelmingly in favor of LGBT non-discrimination laws in employment and housing.
