Council 4-2 Against Gun, Bias Bills

The Coeur d'Alene City Council voted to voice its opposition to two legislative issues that are working their way through the state Legislature this week. House Bills 426 and 427 both would allow Idahoans to refuse to do business with those they object to for religious reasons. If passed, the bill could conflict with the city's recently adopted anti-bias ordinance. Senate Bill 1254 would allow retired law enforcement officers and people with enhanced concealed weapons permits to carry concealed weapons on college campuses. Coeur d'Alene Police Sgt. Christie Wood, as a member of the city's legislative committee, recommended the council oppose both state efforts. As a timely example, Wood, who also sits on North Idaho College's Board of Trustees, said that a student was arrested Monday morning for allegedly carrying a concealed handgun on campus/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.
