Council Panel OKs Anti-Bias Law

Item: Cd'A fights discrimination: Rule would protect gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The city of Coeur d'Alene moved forward Tuesday with an anti-discrimination ordinance that would protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. The proposed rule would prohibit anyone from discriminating in areas of housing, employment and public accommodations based on "sexual orientation, gender identity and expression." Any violation would be a misdemeanor offense, punishable by up to $1,000 fine and up to six months in jail. ... The committee voted 2-1 in favor of sending an ordinance to the full city council for approval.

Question: How will the council vote on this proposal?
