CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago aldermen have recommended final approval of an ordinance expanding the city’s ban on racial profiling.

The city’s racial profiling restrictions already do more than prohibit police stops based the driver’s race, they also ban religion, sexual orientation, or disability from being used as probable cause for a stop.

Finance Committee Chairman Edward Burke (14th) said his panel has voted to expand that further.

“It’s two categories that Attorney General Eric Holder suggested to law enforcement agencies around the nation: origin of nation, and gender identity,” Burke said.

The alderman, a former police officer, said police don’t stop anyone for those reasons now.

“It’s just conforming the existing ordinance, and our policy that’s been in existence since the year 2000 to what the Attorney General has recommended,” he said.
