DES MOINES — Today, a Congressional vote was held on an amendment to a defense authorization bill that would have barred federal contractors from discriminating against the LGBT community. Iowa Rep. David Young initially voted in favor of the amendment, but changed his vote at the last minute and rejected the legislation. The amendment was defeated by a margin of one vote (212-213).

Iowa Representative David Young initially voted in favor of the amendment, but changed his vote at the last minute and rejected the legislation. The amendment was defeated by a margin of one vote (212-213). One Iowa Executive Director Donna Red Wing issued a statement condemning Rep. Young’s change of heart.

“We are disappointed that a majority of the Iowa delegation rejected the legislation, and we are especially disappointed in Rep. Young,” Red Wing said. “He had an opportunity to exhibit Iowa values of decency and fairness. For a moment, he did, but then changed his vote to stand with Rep. King and Rep. Blum. One has to wonder why.”
