Morehead's city council approved a proposal Monday night that would ban discrimination, based on sexual orientation, in housing, employment, and public accommodations.

The Ashland Independent says the plan passed on first reading. It still needs a second vote to become law, and that second vote is planned for next month.

The newspaper says the president of Morehead State University, Wayne Andrews, voiced support for the idea during Monday's meeting.

If the plan becomes law, Morehead would become the sixth city in Kentucky to adopt that type of law.
