HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The Hutchinson City Council has agreed to add sexual orientation to the city's anti-bias ordinance.
The council approved the addition by a 3-2 vote Tuesday. The issue had drawn strong public comment at past meetings but only one person spoke against the ordinance before the final vote.
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/Nh0YTO ) the Kansas Family Policy Council, which opposed the ordinance, is talking to other opponents to decide whether to start a petition campaign to put the issue to a public vote.
Because only 1,308 people voted in the last municipal election, opponents would need only 327 valid signatures to get the issue on the ballot.
