Springfield City Council wants to send a proposed bill that adds protection for folks based on sexual orientation and gender identity to a public vote in November.
That will happen if City Council approves an emergency bill at its meeting on August 27. The bill is being presented as an emergency in order to meet an August 28 deadline to send it to the November ballot.
The public will have a chance to voice their opinion on whether to pass that emergency bill or not at the meeting, Mayor Bob Stephens says folks wanting to talk will be limited to three minutes or a total of two hours for the hearing.
If the emergency bill passes it's headed to a November ballot, if not Council would likey continued the public hearing and eventually vote on it.
