"We Don't Have The Votes"

Rep. Andrews on ENDA Disintegration


Representative Rob Andrews of New Jersey should have led the Senate Subcommittee hearing on ENDA today. As we all know, however, that vote’s been postponed until politicos can lobby their peers to include trans in the discrimination protection measure. In an effort to get some answers, Blue Jersey sat down with Andrews with a little chat.

While Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the committee wants to wait up to two weeks before voting on the issue, Andrew says it could happen sooner. They just need to win 70-80 votes to support trans rights.
