LGBT Ordinance Faces Referendum Vote
(POCATELLO, ID) – A controversial new ordinance protecting certain rights of LGBT people in Pocatello will go up for a referendum vote next year. The measure, which was passed by the city council in June, prohibits discrimination in matters of housing, employment, and public accommodations. However, opponents of the new law wanted the matter to be put up to a public vote. Ralph and Rochelle Lillig gathered more than 2,000 signatures in order to get the referendum on the ballot. The bill will face a city-wide vote May 20.
