Equality Act Re-introduced on Capitol Hill

With a Democratic president and majority in both chambers of Congress, Democrats in the U.S. House have again introduced the Equality Act, which would amend federal civil rights laws to ban discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. This update from OMA Connections Partner Roetzel points out that while the Equality Act was passed by the House in 2019, the then-Republican-controlled Senate did not consider it. President Biden has identified this issue as a priority for his first 100 days. 2/23/2021
