Override of Nashville’s Sexual Orientation Ordinance Completed

The Senate gave final approval Thursday to a bill that will override a Nashville city ordinance that declares companies contracting with the city cannot practice discrimination against employees based on sexual orientation.
The bill, HB600, won an 18-8 favorable vote in the Senate. It passed the House 73-24 last week and now goes to the governor, who has said he supports the measure.
