SALINA, Kan. (AP) The Salina Human Relations Commission has voted to delay a decision on a proposal to change the city’s equality ordinance.
The Salina Journal reports that more than half of those who spoke at Tuesday’s meeting opposed a proposal to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the city’s protected classes.
The ordinance would mean people can’t be discriminated against in public accommodations, housing and employment. Some businesses and landlords would be exempt.
The commission voted to delay action on the ordinance until March, after the city holds three public hearings on the issue.
