Sandpoint Ponders Anti-Bias Law

City officials want to ensure that everyone feels welcome in Sandpoint. At last Thursday’s Administration Committee meeting, Councilman John Reuter sought the committee’s approval to work with city attorney Scot Campbell in drafting a city ordinance that would prevent discrimination  race, color, disability, age, national origin, sex, religion, creed, veteran status and sexual orientation. ... Idaho law currently prohibits discrimination in employment, education, real estate transactions and public accommodations based on age, disability, religion, sex, race, color and national origin. However, Reuter’s proposal would bolster and enhance current state law to include additional categories like veteran status and sexual orientation/Cameron Rasmusson, Bonner County Bee. More here.

Question: Will Sandpoint embrace an anti-discrimination law that's stronger than Idaho law, adding sexual orientation to the mix?
