ACLU Response to Senate Moving One Step Closer to Passing ENDA

You know the House is going to totally fuck this up, but at least the Senate did something, voting today to begin debate on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) by a bipartisan vote of 61-30. Here's what the American Civil Liberties Union had to say about this historic day on Capitol Hill:
"Tonight, we are one step closer to finally enshrining in law the basic principle that job applicants and employees should be judged on their professional credentials and the caliber of their work, and not be penalized because of who they are," said Ian Thompson, American Civil Liberties Union legislative representative. "We urge the Senate to pass these long-sought and overdue protections without delay.” A vote on final passage in the Senate is expected later this week.
