Senate Passes Gay Rights Bill Banning Discrimination

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Senate passed a gay rights bill that bans workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual, and trans-gender Americans.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or "ENDA," had bipartisan support. It prevents employers with 15 or more workers from using sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for hiring, firing, compensation, or promotion.

It exempts religious institutions and the military. The bill's chances in the House are slim.

Speaker John Boehner opposes the bill, saying it is unnecessary and will create costly, frivolous lawsuits for businesses.
