Conservatives cry foul over Fort Worth policy proposals that are gay-friendly – By Mike Lee

Fort Worth – Conservative groups are rallying against proposals aimed at making Fort Worth government policies more inclusive of the gay community.

The proposals include extending domestic-partner benefits to gay couples, considering a company’s record on gay and lesbian issues when approving tax breaks, and including gender reassignment surgery in the city health insurance plan. City employees would also receive training on dealing with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
