BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Billings City Council is considering its own nondiscrimination ordinance and will hear public comment Monday.

It has already heard about nine hours of testimony, but the Billings Gazette reports the council now will have a proposal with more detail before it.

In a memo to council members, City Administrator Tina Volek says the proposed ordinance is similar to ones adopted in Bozeman, Butte-Silver Bow, Helena and Missoula.

But there are differences, including adding the word "non-binary" to the listed categories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual.

Also people may be required to use public facilities designated for their anatomical sex, regardless of their gender identity.

The City Council is not scheduled to take any formal action on the proposal Monday.
