SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- The Salina City Commission has given first round approval to a proposal to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the city's anti-discrimination ordinance.

The commission voted Monday to add those categories to an ordinance that prohibits discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation. The vote came after four hours of discussion and public comment.

Commissioners will take the issue up on second reading during their regular meeting next week.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/JswJss ) even if the commission passes the issue next week, opponents and proponents both have promised an appeal that could put the issue to a public vote.
