Bozeman, Mont., city commissioners are considering a policy change that would prohibit discriminating against people because they are lesbian or gay.

If approved, the change would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the categories of people protected under the city’s anti-discrimination policy. The current policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, age, marital status, national origin, political ideas and disability.

Bozeman Mayor Jeff Krauss says he hasn’t heard of any gay or lesbian discrimination issues with city workers, but he said the policy change could save the city from future legal trouble.
