Fire Chief cancels travel plans to Indiana conference at mayor's request


Minneapolis Fire Chief John Fruetel has canceled a trip to Indiana for a conference later this month at the request of Mayor Betsy Hodges.

Hodges asked him to cancel the plans in light of the state's recent adoption of a law that allows discrimination against LGBT people — legislation that has ignited a firestorm of criticism.

The mayor has also urged the City Council to adopt a policy banning the use of city funds for business travel to Indiana.
