Representative George Miller is the chair of the House Committee on Education and Labor. His Committee was supposed to markup the Employment Non-Discrimination Act last Wednesday and move it to the House floor for a vote.
Instead, he has decided to hold ENDA in Committee to “tinker” with language that needs no tinkering, with no guarantee that it will be rescheduled in December.
Meanwhile, there is a legislative logjam waiting to break loose in the Senate, a major new jobs initiative coming, another LGBT bill on domestic partnership benefits for federal employees edging ahead of ENDA, midterm election campaigns in which 4 Senators we need are going up for re-election, and DADT promised for Spring/Fall 2010.
Call Chairman Miller and tell him to put ENDA back on the schedule.
