Iowa town rejects sexual orientation protections

The Dubuque, Iowa, city council has rejected another attempt to add sexual orientation to the city's nondiscrimination code. The vote Monday night was 4-3. It was the third time the city's Human Rights Commission tried to include sexual orientation in the city code. The council voted down similar proposals in 1988 and 1999. Six Iowa cities have extended protection from discrimination to gays and lesbians: Iowa City, Des Moines, Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids, Ames, and Davenport. (AP)
