A Simple Struggle in Idaho

Statehouse hosts discussion of adding words to Idaho Human Rights Act -

 I love Idaho and it's people. I love Boise. I am stunned that our legislature cannot move forward on something that is so fundamental that most of my friends just assume it is already a part of state law, equal protection for LGBT people. I am stunned that our legislature has plenty of time to vote on a resolution asking the FCC to more stringently enforce "standards of decency" in television programming. One is a measure to ensure everyone has the ability to earn a living, to secure housing and to be a safe, productive citizen. The other is a reaction to naughty TV. This small change to the Idaho Human Rights act has been bandied about for 7 years. What does this say about our state legislators?
