SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Salina's anti-discrimination ordinance will include gays, lesbians and transgender people starting June 4.

Salina's city commission on Monday amended the ordinance to prohibit discrimination against those groups in employment, housing and public accommodations.

Companies that do less than $20,000 a year in business with the city or have fewer than four employees will be exempt.

The vote came after several months of discussion and controversy over the proposal.

KSAL reports the controversy might not be over. Opponents of the ordinance could collect petitions to put the proposal to a public vote.
