Ky House Committee Looks At Proposed Fairness Law

For the first time ever, a Kentucky House committee listened to testimony on a proposed state wide fairness law.
For the first time ever, a Kentucky House committee Wednesday listened to testimony on a proposed statewide fairness law.

The bill had been proposed before.

It would make it illegal to discriminate against anybody in the LGBT community in employment, housing, and public accommodations.

A former police officer testified Wednesday to the committee.

Kile Nave said he was fired, because he is gay.

"It's just a great step forward for Kentucky that we're actually getting the hearing. Like you heard in there, it's been several years that they've tried to get a hearing set, and to have that happen today it's just very historic," said Nave.

Lexington and Louisville are among the six Kentucky cities that had similar ordinances.
