Legislature may let SLC's gay-rights measures stand - Salt Lake Tribune

It looks like the Salt Lake City non-discrimination ordinance, historic because of a change in position by the Mormon Church, is going to take effect. It is not likely, however, despite some expectations to the contrary, to be expanded statewide anytime soon.

Legislature may let SLC's gay-rights measures stand - Salt Lake Tribune: "Salt Lake City's landmark protections for gay and transgender residents appear likely to take effect after surviving the last hurdle: the Legislature.

But most legislative leaders say it's doubtful those provisions against discrimination in housing and employment will be expanded statewide during the 2010 session -- despite a historic endorsement from the LDS Church.

'The Legislature is more inclined to give the Salt Lake City ordinance[s] a year,' says Sen. Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, 'just to kind of see how [they work] and if we need to work any bugs out before we sponsor anything statewide.'"
