Salina voters will decide in November whether to repeal the city's new ordinance barring discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

The City Commission rejected a motion Monday to roll back the protections that took effect in June. The panel then voted unanimously to put the proposal to repeal the ordinance on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The commission approved the ordinance in May on a vote of 3-2. The local law bars discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people in housing, employment and public accommodations.

Efforts to roll back the ordinance were led by the Wichita-based Kansas Family Policy Council and a group called Awaken Salina. They collected hundreds of signatures on petitions to get the law repealed.
