GAY RIGHTS & POLITICS: Idaho bill that would’ve added LGBT to non-discrimination laws is dead.

GAY RIGHTS & POLITICS: Idaho bill that would’ve added LGBT to non-discrimination laws is dead. January 29, 2015

In a 13-4 vote along party lines the Republican party in Idaho killed a bill that would’ve create anti-discrimination protections for the LGBT population of the state:

After more than 20 hours of public testimony, the Idaho House State Affairs Committee decided to kill the “Add the Words” bill that would ban discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Idahoans.

The House State Affairs Committee —made up of the Legislature’s most conservative lawmakers— voted 13-4 to hold the bill in committee. Democrats voted in favor of the bill.

Things like this?  Hang them around the neck of the Republican party during the next national election.
