More nagging questions [regarding the proposed Metro nondiscrimination bill related to companies that contract with the city]:
What does "contracting with Metro" actually mean? Beyond the obvious stuff, like providing goods and services to Metro, does "contracting with Metro" include Metro contracts involving rental and leasing agreements, and buying/selling real estate?
For example, do vendors at the fairgrounds flea market have to prove compliance in order to participate?
What about the racetrack at the Fairgrounds? Does the lessee have to prove compliance with the new language of the law?
Then there's "public art. Do the artists have to sign papers affirming their stand on the GLBT issue?
The Metro bus service, city cabs and the airport all contract with Metro, right? Are those industries included in the new paradigm too?
Will the Titans and Predators have to show compliance too?
Will businesses be considered guilty until proven innocent on this discrimination charge? Will businesses be forced to prove their innocence before entering into new contracts?
