S 87 would allow college and university student groups to limit membership based on religious belief.

The bill would prohibit any public institution of higher learning from taking any action or enforcing any policy that denies a religious student association any benefit available to any other student association based on the religious student association’s requirement that its leaders or members adhere to its sincerely held religious beliefs or standards of conduct.

This would allow for the discrimination against LGBTQ students looking to join student groups.
