Sen. Manchin to Vote For Non-Discrimination Measure
Sen. Joe Manchin plans to vote for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and prior to this he'd been the only Democratic senator who hadn't committed to a yes vote. The bill bars employers from discriminating against workers based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Monday that he will bring the measure to the floor of the Senate for a vote sometime before Thanksgiving. Similar measures have been proposed in the West Virginia Legislature in recent years but all have failed.
