Public comment will be heard Monday night on a controversial human rights ordinance backed by all eight Lansing City Councilmembers.

Essentially, harassment and discrimination would be prohibited based on age, sex and religion, among others. It's also to include gays and transgendered people. It would cover housing, employment, public services and public accommodations.

A similar proposal was put on the ballot for Lansing voters more than ten years ago, it was defeated.

Public comment will be held during the city council meeting on the 10th floor of City Hall. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
