After winning a 7-3 majority in November, Republican leaders in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania plan on repealing the city's LGBTQ protections ordinance passed in October.

According to Penn Live, the borough's council will hold a vote on Monday, January 24.

The ordinance, which prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and ethnicity in housing, employment, and public accommodations, was approved in October, when Democrats controlled the chamber.

Borough Council President Allen Coffman, a Republican, is leading opposition to the ordinance.

“All of us that ran in this election to be on council, we think we got a mandate from the people,” he said. “People we talked to when we were campaigning did not like this ordinance at all. I don't know what the vote will be, but I have a pretty good idea.”

Alice Elia, the former Chambersburg borough council president and a Democrat, called repeal of the ordinance a “political move.”

“I don't know of any reasons for repealing it other than a political move,” she said. “This issue should not be politicized. It's an issue of justice and having equal protection for everybody in our community. It shouldn't be a political or a Democratic or Republican issue. This should be something we are all concerned about.”

Coffman told Penn Live that the ordinance is ineffective because it has “no teeth.”

“There are no penalties, not fines,” he said. “There’s nothing that the ordinance can make someone do. The most they can hope for is that the committee request the two parties to sit down with a counselor or mediator and talk about it. Quite frankly there is nothing that compels them to. There’s no teeth in this.”

Pennsylvania is among the 27 states lacking statewide LGBTQ protections.

According to Penn Live, Chambersburg is poised to become the state's first municipality to repeal an LGBTQ-inclusive law.
