Moscow: Transgenders Protected Now

Item: Moscow won't alter discrimination policy: Majority of council says city already gives adequate protection to the transgendered/David Johnson, Lewiston Tribune

More Info: City councilors here shot down a resolution Monday night to amend the city's nondiscrimination employment policy to specifically prohibit discrimination based on gender expression, identity or characteristics. By a 5-1 vote, the majority of councilors agreed the city's current policy already protects people from such discrimination.

Question: Did the Moscow City Council make the right decision by not specifically including transgender people in the city's nondiscrimination policy?
