FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11 and AP) – After officials in Frankfort postponed a final vote on a proposed fairness ordinance Monday, a final vote is expected on the ordinance Thursday.

The vote was postponed because the ordinance was amended the definition of family to include legal guardianship. The ordinance will prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or perceived gender identity.

If commissioners pass the ordinance, Frankfort would become the fifth city in the state to do so. Lexington, Louisville, Covington and the eastern Kentucky city of Vicco have passed similar measures.
