BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The Battle Creek City Commission has received language and introduced an ordinance amendment that would add gays, lesbians and transgendered residents to their non-discrimination ordinance.

It is designed to protect them from being discriminated against in housing and employment.

Of the many citizens who stood up to discuss the ordinance, only one expressed a religious objection to the proposal.

It was forwarded to the September 3rd meeting on an 8 to 1 vote for a hearing and a final vote.
