N. Idaho city considering ban on anti-gay bias

Associated Press
MOSCOW, Idaho -- City officials in Moscow in northern Idaho are considering an ordinance prohibiting discrimination in housing and employment based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The city's Human Rights Commission and the Fair and Affordable Housing Commission are working together to make a joint recommendation to the city council.
Ken Nagy of the housing commission tells the Moscow-Pullman Daily News that there are discrimination protections based on race, creed, gender, age and religion, but that sexual orientation and gender identity aren't protected.
The Idaho Senate declined to consider adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the state human rights act earlier this year.
Ken Faunce of the city's Human Rights Commission says that means cities have to find a solution themselves.
