Metro Nashville nondiscrimination ordinance for the new year

Rex mentions what the Nashville GLBT community has been discussing for months:

Look for major legislation from Council members Megan Barry, Tim Garrett and Ronnie Steine.

Barry has already said she intends to file a nondiscrimination bill to protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Metro employees. Steine has weighed in on English Only and word has it Garrett is considering attention-grabbing legislation as well.

With a dicey picture in the Legislature this winter, city and county governments may have to become the new focus for equality efforts in Tennessee.
