Leon County, Florida, which includes state capital Tallahassee, voted 5-2 last night to broaden its human rights ordinance, the Tallahassee Democrat reports:
Commissioners Jane Sauls and Bryan Desloge voted against the measure. The proposed changes offer stronger protections from discrimination in four areas: general provisions, employment discrimination, equal access to places of public accommodations and fair housing.
The issue created distinct division in the community. Commissioners have received hundreds of e-mails and calls in the past month from residents, business owners and members of faith-based groups."
