(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – Two local LGBT advocacy groups held a forum in Idaho Falls Wednesday night addressing the possible adoption of a new anti-discrimination ordinance. The city of Idaho Falls has a working draft in place that would prohibit discrimination from landlords or employers based on sexual orientation. The law would make acts of discrimination a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Organizers say they’re not creating a new protected class, but are working to protect people of all orientations.
