Non-Discrimination Ordinance Postponed ... Again

Posted By on Mon, Nov 2, 2009 at 3:40 PM

In July, the Memphis City Council voted to postpone discussion of a citywide non-discrimination ordinance protecting LGBT city workers until after a new mayor was elected. The item was re-scheduled for November 3rd.

But the council won't hear the matter tomorrow. Mayor AC Wharton has opted to postpone non-discrimination legislation until his administration completes a review of the ordinance's impact. It should be noted that Wharton supported a Shelby County non-discrimination ordinance during his time as county mayor.
