WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Monday that he expects to take up legislation "soon" that would ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
As part of a statement in celebration of June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, Reid noted Nevada laws prevent people from being fired simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. That's not the case in many other states, he said, which is why it's time to move on the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
"I look forward to taking up the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) soon, to prohibit such job discrimination across the nation," Reid said.
