TV Ad Targets Gay Discrimination Bill
(KUTV) It's the first time anyone can remember a TV ad campaign against a bill at the legislature.
"The First Freedom Coalition" is running a paid commercial against an anti-discrimination bill that would outlaw discrimination against gays in jobs and housing.
Senator Steve Urquhart says Utah attitudes towards gays are changing. Despite decades of defeat for bills to protect gay rights, he is submitting the bill again, and believes it might pass.
No one can remember a TV ad campaign against a Utah legislative bill before.
Laura Bunker of First Freedoms says more rights for gays might mean fewer rights for others.
