As many of you are aware, Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 447, ending California’s restriction on taxpayer funded travel by state agencies to states which have adopted discriminatory LGBTQ+ laws.

As Governor Newsom said in signing the bill, “this measure helps California’s message of acceptance, equality and hope reach the places where it is most needed.” This action will also once again allow state-supported academic research and its dissemination, much of it focused on equity and human rights.

SF State and the CSU remain steadfast in support of our LGBTQ+ colleagues, students, and community members. A wide variety of resources are available on and off campus for students and employees.

For the remainder of the year, when booking travel, users will continue to see an alert when selecting a previously banned state. When booking travel, users will need to select “No” in the field “Are you traveling to a banned state?” located on the Request Header, then click “save.”

Next year, the alert will be removed. However, the field will be visible until all pending travel forms are processed to ensure users don’t experience errors. Please feel free to reach out to University Travel Services ( with any questions that you might have as you begin using the travel request with this modified approach.
