WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement after the House of Representative passed the Equality Act – historic, comprehensive federal legislation to ban discrimination against LGBTQ Americans.
“It is just wrong that in a majority of states, LGBTQ Americans live without fully-inclusive non-discrimination laws and are not fully protected from being fired, evicted from their home, or denied services simply because of who they are or who they love. It is time to end this kind of discrimination because LGBTQ Americans should have the freedom of full equality.
“The House has taken an historic step forward by passing the Equality Act and the Senate should work together on getting the job done to pass bipartisan legislation that provides full equality for every LGBTQ American across our country.”
