Anthony Villarreal, 25, speaks about his expulsion from William Jessup University, a private Christian school in Rocklin. Villarreal believes he was expelled because he was gay. The school says he was expelled because of an arrest for domestic violence. Senate Bill 1146, a bill that would have allowed students like Villarreal to sue religious schools for discrimination, will be amended by its author Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, on Thursday to remove key provisions. Anshu Siripurapu asiripurapu@Sacbee.com
