ARKANSAS: Eureka Springs Voters Block Repeal Of LGBT Rights Bill

Some great news tonight:
People in Eureka Springs voted Tuesday to keep a measure that would prohibit the city and private businesses from discriminating against someone based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. The unofficial final tally was 579 votes in favor of ratifying Ordinance 2223, approved by the city council in February. 231 people voted in favor of repealing the law. Voting began one week ago. The law is similar to an anti-discrimination ordinance passed by Springfield's city council, that was later repealed by voters.
More than 2-1!
