Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that the Senate will vote on a bill to expand gay rights in the workplace before the Thanksgiving holiday. Reid said the upper chamber would consider the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, which would “work against discrimination on gender identity.” The bill is unlikely to gain much traction in the Republican controlled House, but could provide Democrats with another opportunity to paint the GOP as out of step with most Americans by obstructing a bill aimed at ending workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The legislation almost passed Congress in 1996, and has not been voted on in the Senate since.
