Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) - The North Dakota Senate has rejected a measure that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation in housing, government, public services and the workplace. The bill was defeated 26-21.

The measure was sponsored by a group of lawmakers that includes Fargo Rep. Josh Boschee, the state's first openly gay legislator. Similar legislation introduced in 2009 passed the Senate but failed in a House committee.
