The ENDA Discrimination...Or More Politics As Usual?
Link Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass), who's celebrating 20 years as an openly gay Congresscritter, has introduced two versions of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) for discussion on Capitol Hill. One version covers gays and bisexuals, the other includes transgender persons.
“It comes down to three choices,” Frank said Friday. “We vote on a bill with the transgender [clause] and we lose, we pull the bill altogether, or we pass the one with sexual orientation.”
