Gay Bill of Special Rights Introduced In Congress
The pro-gay news outlet Wisconsin gazzette reports:
"The Human Rights Campaign joined with bipartisan lawmakers and an unprecedented number of businesses to announce the re-introduction of the Equality Act - federal legislation that would finally guarantee explicit, permanent protections for LGBTQ people under our nation's existing civil rights laws."
"The Equality Act is co-sponsored by 240 members of Congress.
It was first introduced in 2015 by Rep. David Cicilline, D-Rhode Island, and by U.S. Send. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin, and Cory Booker, D-New Jersey."
