On Monday (24 January), the Chambersburg Borough Council voted to rescind a newly passed anti-discrimination ordinance. The law protected residents against discrimination based on their sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender identity.

At least 71 of Pennsylvania’s 2,562 municipalities have passed LGBTQ-inclusive local nondiscrimination ordinances as of January 2022, according to the Pennsylvania Youth Congress.

Chambersburg has become the first to repeal one Pennsylvanian borough to repeal the ordinance. The law was passed four months ago by a Democratic majority.
