LeFavour's 'Add The Words' Try Fails

Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise, has been overruled in her attempt to challenge Senate Assistant Majority Leader Chuck Winder's ruling that her amendment to SB 1215 can't be considered. The bill is about increasing penalties for prison contraband; LeFavour argued that the bill says it's about promoting safety and security, and so was her amendment -- to expand the Idaho Human Rights Act to cover discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. That would include prison employees who are gay or lesbian, she said/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Do you support Sen. LeFavour's attempt to resurrect "Add the Words" legislation?
