Al Franken Ain’t Gonna Let His Federal Anti-Bullying Bill Die So Easily

We felt mega-bummed when we heard that Senator Al Franken didn’t even bother entering his Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA) into a major education bill this last Thursday. But perhaps our mega-bummed feelings were premature.

Franken apparently withheld his pro-LGBT SNDA because of fears that its inclusion would have jeopardized bipartisan support for the entire education bill. Now he’s promised to introduce the bill in the Senate and thinks he’ll have the votes to pass it. Fingers crossed.
