Victor Latest Idaho City to Approve Non-Discrimination Law

Posted By on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 1:51 PM

Victor, an Idaho border town located 25 miles from Jackson Hole, Wyo., just "added the words."

The town's city council unanimously approved a measure that added work, housing and public accommodation protections to LGBT people Thursday, Boise State Public Radio reports. Victor, a town of fewer than 2,000 residents, is now Idaho's eighth city to pass such a measure.

According to Victor Mayor Zach Smith, there haven't been many instances of LGBT discrimination in Victor, but the new law fits within the city's mission to "take care of the health, safety and welfare of citizens, and this ordinance does exactly that," he said.

The ordinance goes into effect Monday, June 16.
