Utah Lawmakers Want a Year to Study Gay Discrimination Ban

Mormon_templex390_3

Utah lawmakers will not take up a law that would ban discrimination against gays and lesbians in the workforce and in housing, and instead will spend a year studying the issue.

According to the Associated Press, in exchange, opponents of gay rights legislation have agreed to not spend time attempting to block local governments from passing their own nondiscrimination laws this legislative session.

Gay rights advocates were pushing for a nondiscrimination law at the state level, building on momentum created by the Salt Lake City council, which passed nondiscrimination ordinances last year.

Those ordinances passed with the support of the Mormon Church.
