SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Two more Utah cities are adopting ordinances to protect gay and transgender people from discrimination.

The city councils in Murray and Moab voted unanimously Tuesday to ban housing and employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Equality Utah Executive Director Brandie Balken tells The Salt Lake Tribune that the measures reflect the values of Utah residents.

There are now nine Utah cities and counties with such ordinances. Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Park City, Summit County, Logan, West Valley City and Taylorsville also ban housing and employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
