CdA’s Anti-Bias Debate Makes WSJ

How big is that discussion occurring this week re: Coeur d'Alene's possible decision to extend anti-discrimination protections to the gay community in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations? The story was picked up by the Wall Street Journal today. Coeur d'Alene's General Service Committee voted 2-1 Tuesday to recommend approval of the ordinance to the City Council. (Photo: Thom George)

From WSJournal article by Jim Carlton: "Council President Mike Kennedy, who supports the proposal, said he plans to schedule it for a vote sometime in June. Three other council members said in interviews they either plan to vote for the ban or lean to doing so, while a fifth declined to comment and the mayor, Ms. Bloem—who votes only to break ties—said she would pass it." Complete article here.

Question: Will the vote on this controversial issue have repercussions for the November city election?
