ENDA vote delayed again

The House vote on ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act has been delayed again. The vote was removed from the agenda at the last minute.

At issue is the inclusion of gender identity. If included, gender identity would force organizations like the Boy Scouts, or an Orthodox Jewish day care center to hire a man dressed in women's clothing.

In the last few days, Rep. Jim Ramstad, (GOP Dist 3,) Rep. Tim Walz, (DFL Dist. 1), and Rep. Colin Peterson, (DFL Dist. 7), have received thousands of calls urging them to veto ENDA.

Call your Congressman and tell him to "vote no" on all versions of ENDA.
