Saginaw city council postpones LGBT nondiscrimination ordinance vote

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW (WJRT) - (04/21/14) - The LGBT non-discrimination ordinance is a hot topic in the Saginaw community.

Monday night, city council decided to postpone their vote on the ordinance after nearly two hours of public comment from both sides of the issue.

Some on city council want more time to discuss the ordinance with religious leaders, business owners, landlords and other groups in the city.

Saginaw council woman Annie Boensch first introduced the ordinance. It says within the city of Saginaw, no one can be discriminated against for being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

That goes for both employment and public accommodations.

Right now, there's no state law protecting the LGBT community from being fired.

This ordinance would change that.
