You can read my full story here at spokesman.com on today’s “Add the Words” bill hearing, in which nearly 500 people flocked to Idaho’s state Capitol to give heartfelt testimony both for and against a proposed law to ban discrimination against gays and transgender people in housing, employment and public accommodations. The hearing is scheduled to resume at 5 p.m. Mountain time in the Lincoln Auditorium at the state Capitol.
