Pocatello Drafting Sexual Identity Discrimination Ordinance

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — City leaders in Pocatello say they are in the process of drafting an ordinance banning discrimination because of a person’s sexual identity. The Idaho State Journal reports a final draft could ready for public review early next year. Pocatello is the latest Idaho city taking steps to prevent discrimination against gays, bisexuals and transgender residents. Leaders in Sandpoint already have a similar ordinance on the books and Boise officials are now drafting their own version. In September, Pocatello officials rejected a resolution condemning discrimination based on sexual identity. But City Councilman Roger Bray says an ordinance is a better solution because it carries more clout than a resolution. Still, some supporters are urging the city to speed up the process — fearing that delays create more opportunities for discrimination.
