(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – The city of Idaho Falls has passed two sections of a bill aimed at providing more protections for gay, lesbian, and transgendered people.  In vote cast late Thursday night, city council members and the mayor approved two sections that ban discrimination in matters of housing and employment. A third section addressing public accommodations has been tabled for now. Meanwhile on Saturday the first Gay Pride Festival was held in Idaho Falls. Organizers say that while they were happy with the bill passing, they’ll continue to fight for tougher laws aimed at curbing discrimination.
