After passing in a string of other Idaho towns, Pocatello’s city Council rejected such an ordinance on a 3 to 3 vote. Joe.My.God reports:
Last night the Idaho town of Pocatello (population 54,000) rejected a proposed ordinance that would have banned anti-LGBT discrimination in housing, accommodations, and employment. An evenly divided Pocatello City Council voted 3-3 on a motion to approve the ordinance following another short public hearing on changes made since the ordinance was first proposed April 4.
It always strikes me that, as we rack up marriage equality wins across the world, some places can’t even pass a simple housing, accommodations, and employment protections ordinance.
