First Reading of Non-Discrimination Ordinance Draft

Posted: Updated:

The Non-Discrimination Ordinance hearing has tensions running high in the Billings City Council Chamber.

Councilwoman Becky Bird walked out of of the meeting for just over ten minutes, after a brief argument with the president of Montana Family Foundation, Jeff Laszloffy.

Supporters and opposers of the NDO are waiting patiently for their three minutes to speak.

This is the first of two readings for the NDO draft. The second reading, if the NDO draft is approved at the first reading, will be August 25th.

Discussion on the NDO began at 9 PM and is expected to continue into the early morning hours.
