Gay-rights activists occupy Idaho Senate entrances
More than three dozen protesters stood shoulder to shoulder just outside the chamber Monday morning.
They wore “Add the Words Idaho” T-shirts and covered their mouths with their hands.
Security was on the scene, mulling what to do.
Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, a Rexburg Republican, says he’s told his members to remain outside the chambers until the protesters had vacated the entrances, to avoid a conflict.
For eight years, gay-rights activists have sought workplace and housing protections afforded other groups by Idaho law.
Idaho Republicans have blocked such measures.
