Foster Applauds Senate Vote on Employment Non-Discrimination Act, Calls For House To Take Action
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Bill Foster commended the Senate for voting 64-32 in favor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The law would provide basic protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
“I am very pleased that the Senate has passed this important legislation with bipartisan support. Now it is time for the House to take action,” said Foster. “My father was a civil rights lawyer, and I was raised with a strong belief that everyone – no matter who they are, where they came from, or who they love – deserves equal rights under the law.”
Congressman Foster is a co-sponsor of H.R. 1755, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013.
