U.S. Senate to vote on ENDA Monday night


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled a vote on the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) for Monday. Employment Nondiscrimination Act Set For Monday NightVote:

Reid [filed] a procedural motion on Thursday evening to begin debate
on the bill, setting up a Monday evening vote. The bill needs to get 60
votes to clear a procedural hurdle ahead of the final vote, and as of
Thursday, 59 senators publicly support it. [Including all 55 Senate Democrats.]

Time to call your Arizona Senators and tell them to vote to end the GOP
filibuster of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) and to proceed
to consideration of the bill on a democratic simple majority vote.
