Having secured critical support in the Senate on Monday, backers of a bill that would ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity appear to have enough votes to pass the legislation in the U.S. Senate. If it then receives a ‘yea’ vote in the House of Representatives, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, called ENDA, would encode workplace protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans into federal law.
The bill faces steep odds in the House, however. Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) has objected to the measure, stating that it would incite a wave of lawsuits from individuals who feel they’ve experienced discrimination at work because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
