SALINA, Kan. (AP) The Salina Human Relations Commission is supporting a proposal to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance.
The commission voted Tuesday to recommend that the Salina City Commission make the changes to discourage discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations.
The Salina Journal reports businesses with city contracts that have fewer than four employees and those who do less than $20,000 a year in business with the city would be exempt.
Commissioners agreed to recommend the city take a year to make the changes in contracts for goods and services as the contracts come up for renewal. They also will recommend a 60-day period for more public education about the changes before they are implemented.
