How large are the areas? City (large/small) county (large/small)
If the councils in this area are any indication, anything below state
level is unlikely to cause problems. Though I have no idea how the council
is set up around Los Angeles county, I can imagine it could move to Orange
County if neccessary. (which will pass laws banning bias on sexual orientation
soon after Satan orders ice skates)

Agreed. How many professional staff are there for most councils? I know
BSA has Regions between National and Council, but from what I've read here
it sounds like all regional staff is in Dallas. Dallas is also very
unlikely to passs that sort of Bias law. BTW, I wonder if BSA considerred
this when they move the Nat'l HQ to Dallas from NYC(I think it was NYC,
it may have been DC)...
