Denney: House never intended to grant ‘Add The Words’ bill a hearing

During today's Idaho Press Club Headliner luncheon, House Speaker Lawerence Denney was asked about the prospect of the “Add The Words” legislation coming up in the House; the Senate State Affairs Committee earlier refused, along party lines, to hold grant the bill a hearing. It would expand Idaho's Human Rights Act to bar discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Denney said, “I have not seen a bill, and I don't think that there is any change in support on the House side.” Asked what he meant by that - a change from what - Denney said, “From  not hearing it. I think that was always the position on the House side.”
