BREAKING: Senate Clears Filibuster Threat To ENDA, Advances Bill

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act is on its way to a final vote in the U.S. Senate.

BuzzFeed reports:

The Senate overcame any threat of a filibuster to a bill banning discrimination against LGBT people on Monday, setting up a final vote on the bill in the coming days.

Seven Republicans broke ranks with their party in voting to block any filibusters against the bill, joined by all 55 Democrats in the Senate for a 61-30 vote. Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, returning from a funeral, did not vote.

It looks like ENDA is ready to pass in the Senate, but is there any hope in the Republican controlled House of Representatives?

Make sure your reps hear from you, Instincters!
