DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Officials in Danville have given preliminary approval to an ordinance that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

City Commission members voted 4-1 in favor of the so-called fairness ordinance.

Officials must give the proposal a final approval before it becomes law. It is set to be discussed again on May 27.

If commissioners approve it, Danville would become the seventh Kentucky city to have a fairness ordinance. It would join Lexington, Louisville, Covington, Frankfort, Morehead and Vicco.

Danville Mayor Bernie Hunstad voted against the ordinance, saying it was unnecessary because the city already has laws to protect people from discrimination.
