(p) Posting of Fair Housing Information.  The Commission on Human Rights shall create a poster containing information on the prohibition of housing discrimination against any person on the basis of the actual or perceived  race, creed, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, partnership  status, or alienage  or citizenship status of such person or persons, or because of any lawful source of income  of  such  person  or  persons,  or  because children are, may be or would be residing with such person or persons, or such person's status as a member of any other group protected under this title.  Such poster shall be made available by the Commission to covered entities under this section.
      (1) Every covered entity must post and maintain such poster, in accordance with the rules of the Commission, in a conspicuous location accessible to all employees and housing applicants.
(2) The Commission may charge each covered entity a fee to cover printing, postage and handling expenses incurred in connection with making such poster available.
