Anchorage bans anti-gay discrimination

The Anchorage Assembly (city council) voted 7-4 on Aug. 11 to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The law applies in employment, housing, public accommodations and credit, with certain exemptions for religious groups and churches.

At press time, it was unclear whether Mayor Dan Sullivan would veto the measure. If he does, it would take eight votes to override the veto.
