Henderson could become the next Kentucky city to enact a so-called fairness ordinance that would grant civil rights protections for the LGBTQ community.
The measure would ban discrimination in housing, employment and public accodmodations.
Mayor Steve Austin says Henderson had a fairness ordinance about 15 years ago but it was later repealed.
He says the controversy split the city and doesn’t want to see that happen again. Austin adds that he hasn’t seen evidence of the city needing those protections for LGBTQ members.
