Regional Scouts council asks for ban' s repeal

SUMMARY: The Madison, WI Boy Scouts Council serving Dane, Sauk, Iowa, Richland, Columbia and Adams counties has
formally asked its national organization to change its policy banning homosexual leaders.
Larry Kahan, a member of the Four Lakes Council executive board, said local scouting leaders want a different policy
on sexual behavior by Boy Scout leaders. This local group is seeking a policy based upon behavior with youth members
rather than beliefs.
The United Way of Dane County approved in March providing $136, 240 in annual funding to the council, saying it
was best to work with the organization to make it more tolerant of gays and lesbians.
