Pelosi, Miller, Frank and Baldwin Statement on ENDA
Washington, D.C. -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller, Congressman Barney Frank, and Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin issued the following statement today on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA):
"After discussions with congressional leaders and organizations supporting passage of ENDA, we have agreed to schedule mark-up of the bill in the Committee on Education and Labor later this month, followed by a vote in the full House. This schedule will allow proponents of the legislation to continue their discussions with Members in the interest of passing the broadest possible bill."
This, of course, is by no means a victory...it's simply more time to try to snatch one from the jaws of defeat. Now, we must really turn the pressure up. No retreat, baby, no surrender!
