Hayden Chamber Discusses Anti-Bias

Item: Hayden chamber talks anti-discrimination: It is unknown if City Council will address possible ordinance/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Panelists representing both sides of an anti-discrimination ordinance geared at protecting homosexuals discussed why they support or oppose the ordinance Thursday at the Kroc Center during the Hayden Chamber of Commerce's membership breakfast. Whether the Hayden City Council ever takes up the ordinance remains to be seen -- nobody is proposing to pitch it that way yet -- but supporters said an ordinance wouldn't harm local businesses if it did. They also said cities are doing the right thing by taking on the measure because protecting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination is an issue Congress should address, but hasn't.

Question: Do you think the 2014 Legislature will address this issue, now that six Idaho cities have?
