Fairness law passes in Frankfort

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Frankfort, Ky. on Thursday became the fifth city in the state to adopt a fairness law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.  It follows Louisville, Lexington, Covington, and the small down of Vicco in eastern Kentucky in enacting such a law.

The vote by Frankfort's Board of Commissioners was 3-2, and came after nearly an hour of public comment.

The law establishes a Human Rights Commission which will help take in complaints, enforce the law, and educate the public.
