Voters in two Kansas communities have rejected proposals to protect people from discrimination based on sexual orientation.

In Salina, about 54 percent of voters Tuesday supported repeal of an anti-discrimination ordinance approved by the City Commission in June.

Hutchinson voters turned down a local proposal banning discrimination against gays, lesbians and bisexuals in housing, employment and public accommodations. Unofficial results showed 58 percent of voters opposed the measure.

The Wichita-based Kansas Family Policy Council praised the results in both cities.
