TAYLORSVILLE -- The Taylorsville City Council has adopted an anti-discrimination ordinance that protects gay and transgender residents from discrimination in housing and employment matters.
The council on Wednesday voted 4-1 in favor of the ordinance.
The vote makes Taylorsville Utah's seventh city or county to pass laws that prevent decisions about a person's housing access or employment from being based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Logan, Park City, Salt Lake City, West Valley City, Salt Lake County and Summit County have also passed anti-discrimination measures.
The political advocacy group Equality Utah has been working to get the anti-discrimination ordinances in place in at least 10 municipalities by the end of 2010.
