Senate Passes Gay-Rights Bill Banning Discrimination

The Senate passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act "in a tempered win for gay rights advocates who still need a reluctant, GOP-controlled House to take up and pass the bill," Roll Call reports.

"The bill, if it were to become law, would set a federal non-discrimination standard to ensure that private employers cannot fire employees based on their sexual orientation or identity."

"Ten Republicans joined all Democrats to pass the gay rights bill, while 32 Republicans voted against the measure."
