While we were away: 'House meet ENDA, ENDA meet House'

by Jeremy Hooper

Congressman Barney Frank has once again introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (the good, inclusive version) into the House:

Harry Gural, Frank’s press secretary, said the representative initially introduced the legislation June 19 but the list of cosponsors — 10 at the time — was incomplete, so he reintroduced the bill June 24 with more than 100 cosponsors, including all four Philadelphia U.S. representatives: Bob Brady (D-1st Dist.), Chaka Fattah (D-2nd Dist.), Patrick Murphy (D-8th Dist.) and Allyson Schwartz (D-13th Dist.).

Welcome back, ENDA. May this year's strife involve fairness vs. inequality rather than LGB vs. T!
