Hayden Chamber Sets Anti-Bias Panel

A panel featuring human rights advocate Tony Stewart will discuss the recent antidiscrimination ordinance adopted by the city of Coeur d'Alene when the Hayden Chamber of Commerce meets for breakfast at 7 o'clock Thursday, June 27, at the Kroc Center. Stewart will be joined by Idaho state Sen. Steve Vick, R-Dalton Gardens, and Coeur d'Alene council members Mike Kennedy and Dan Gookin. A press release for the event reads: "Since there are ongoing efforts to bring similar ordinances to the surrounding communities, there is a potential for this legislation to affect businesses in the Hayden Chamber. In response the Chamber will be hosting a panel of individuals to discuss the impacts on businesses."

Question: Am I reading the tea leaves correctly -- that Hayden will be asked next to approve an antidiscrimination ordinance?
