Twin Falls Adds Sexual Orientation Language to Anti-Discrimination Policy

 

Benito Baeza

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- The city of Twin Falls will be making some changes to its anti-discrimination policy to show support to the gay, lesbian, and transgendered members of the community. Last night city council voted to add sexual orientation, gender identity and expression to its employee policy.

The decision only applies to the city government and its employees. However, several council members supported a broader discussion on a city wide ordinance calling for anti-discrimination based on sexual orientation in the workplace and housing. Other cities in Idaho have taken similar steps or are in the process of doing so. Other council members said they were not ready for that discussion, but open to the discussion. It passed in a 5 to 2 vote, council members Suzanne Hawkins and Don Hall voted against.
