Idaho, like other states, has gained some protections for its LGBT community through municipal ordinances banning discrimination in housing and employment. It seems the Idaho State GOP just can’t stand that fact! Yesterday at their annual Central Committee summer meeting the Republican Party leaders of Idaho passed a non-binding resolution urging the GOP-dominated legislature to rescind those protections, making them null and void. Thus far, the GOP-led Idaho Legislature has refused to add housing and workplace protections for gays and lesbians to the Idaho Human Rights Act. This had led the LGBT community in a few cities to fight for housing and job protections via city ordinances. And fight they have had to do/Cathy Kristopherson, O-Blog-Dee-O-Blog-Da. More here.
