Efforts to adopt a nondiscrimination ordinance meant to protect members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the Scottsdale workplace have apparently hit an impasse as city council members struggle to agree on what size business should be impacted by the new law.

Scottsdale City Council was expected to begin its outreach effort next month on the creation of such an ordinance, however, caveats to the proposed rules would have exempted nearly all businesses within Scottsdale city limits. The future of a workplace LGBT protection ordinance now remains in question, with one councilwoman claiming it’s highly unlikely the issue will ever be revived by the current council.
