Phoenix To Vote on Expanding Anti-Discrimination Laws to Include Individuals with Disabilities and Members of LGBT Community

Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio is trying to rally his ultra-right-wing conservative troops to oppose a policy proposal that aims protect individuals from discrimination because of their "sexual orientation," "gender identity or expression," and "disability."

DiCiccio calls the proposal a "radical left turn for Phoenix."

He attacks Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton for his support of the measure and for trying to "fast track" it.

The City Council is considering the proposal at 2:30 p.m. today at the Orpheum Theater (they're expecting a big crowd), 203 W. Adams Street.
