Lewiston Adds Sexual Orientation to City Policy

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Add Lewiston to the list of Idaho cities to ban discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation. The city council voted Monday night for language adding sexual orientation to its non-discrimination policies. The Lewiston City Council voted 5-2 to outlaw discrimination in hiring of city jobs. Leaders in Twin Falls voted 5-2 to add sexual orientation to the anti- discrimination and harassment policy for city employees.

Lewiston and Twin Falls now join Boise and Sandpoint in taking the official step to prohibit discrimination on hiring for city jobs based on a person’s sexual preference or orientation. The votes also come nearly a year after state lawmakers rejected a bill to ban workplace and housing discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
