8th Idaho Town 'Adds The Words'

A small town on Idaho's border with Wyoming is the latest city to approve employment, housing and public accommodation protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Victor, Idaho is the eighth city to approve a non-discrimination ordinance. It says people can’t be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. Mayor Zach Smith says Victor’s City Council unanimously approved the measure because it’s a “fairness and equality issue.” He says there haven’t been a lot of instances of discrimination in Victor/Emilie Ritter Saunders, Boise State Public Radio. More here. (H/T: Coeur d'Alene Press)

Question: Do you think the 2015 Idaho Legislature will "Add the Words" now that 8 Idaho towns have?
