Sticky Notes Urge Anti-Bias Hearing

There's a bumper crop of sticky notes on the House State Affairs Committee hearing room door this morning, all urging Chairman Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, to hold a hearing on SB 1033, Sen. Edgar Malepeai's bill to expand the Idaho Human Rights Act's non-discrimination protections to include sexual orientation. McKenzie has declined to hold a hearing on the bill, saying conservative senators on his committee won't pass it. More here. (Eye On Boise photo: Betsy Russell)

Question: Should McKenzie hold a hearing on the bill to expand the Idaho Human Rights Act's non-discrimination protection, even if it has no chance of passing out of his committee?
