Scenes from the floor on the second day of ENDA debate

Yesterday Senate debate continued on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. No new votes to report, but here are two of the many floor speeches.

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR), ENDA’s lead sponsor:

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), supporting ENDA and calling out the politics that have kept it from passing:

Today’s speeches have already begun, and amendment votes are also in progress. Please keep calling the Senate. There are more instructions here and here, and you can always reach both of your senators by dialing 202-224-3121. Don’t forget to sign our petition.

The time is now – say yes to common sense and no to anti-gay extremistspass ENDA!
