Republican Senator Dean Heller, the junior Senator from Nevada, announced Monday his support for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) , which likely makes him the crucial 60th vote in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's attempt to get the bill approved by the Senate. The battle to get ENDA passed during the current session of Congress has been long and protracted, with the legislation receiving bursts of media attention that punctuate long waiting periods. Reid's attempt to set up a cloture vote - which would prevent an attempted filibuster that could kill the bill - brought the most recent flurry of updates.

More than half of the members of Maryland's congressional delegation signed a letter dated March 18 to President Barack Obama asking him to issue an executive order to prohibit federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT workers. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin and U.S. Reps. Steny Hoyer, John Sarbanes, John Delaney and Chris Van Hollen were among the 195 Democrats to urge Obama to issue protections for LGBT employees. "This executive order would provide LGBT people with another avenue in the federal government they could turn to if they were the victim of employment discrimination by a federal contractor," the letter, which was signed by 47 senators and 148 members of the House, reads.

President Barack Obama briefly reiterated his commitment to LGBT equality around the globe in a section of Tuesday night's State of the Union speech, but he did not address the stalled Employment Non-Discrimination Act or whether he would issue an executive order to prohibit discrimination against LGBT employees by federal contractors. In a larger discussion about American ideals and the United States' opportunities to "promote understanding around the globe," Obama suggested the nation is in part defined by its belief " in the inherent dignity and equality of every human being, regardless of race or religion, creed or sexual orientation.

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a bill that would ban hiring and employment discrimination against LGBT individuals, will proceed in the Senate after 61 senators voted for a cloture motion that will lead to a final vote on the bill. Maryland Senators Barbara A. Mikulski and Ben Cardin were among the legislators to vote "yes" on cloture, which limits the amount of time ENDA can be debated before a final vote on the measure is eventually held.  Seven Republicans voted in support of the bill: ENDA co-sponsors Sens.

House Speaker John Boehner has said he would oppose a landmark gay-rights bill, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), because its religious exemption is not broad enough. But the House speaker has it backward. The current religious exemption in ENDA is already too wide. For advocates of religious freedom like me, there is a crucial principle at stake: Religious exemptions should never become a tool of discrimination. They should be narrowly tailored to reduce the burden on a person's free exercise of religion.

Happy Halloween! Let's talk about something truly terrifying: LGBT discrimination in hiring. Maybe not as viscerally scream-inducing as ghouls or witches, I know. But after progress on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act got halted by a government shutdown and fights over the debt ceiling, BuzzFeed reported Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is likely to start setting up a Monday vote on beginning debate on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act , also known as ENDA.

On Sept. 5, Michael Carney, an openly gay Massachusetts police officer, eloquently told members of the House of Representatives why the Employment Non-Discrimination Act continues to be essential. Mr. Carney, who endured job discrimination once he made the courageous decision to come out to his colleagues, said, "Had I not been successful in fighting the bias that tried to prevent me from working, all the good I have done for some of the most vulnerable people in my community would never have happened."

Gov. Martin O'Malley's Celtic rock band always gets a bit more attention this time of year, but O'Malley's March got to play a particularly exclusive venue Tuesday night: the East Room at the White House. The band was on stage for a St. Patrick's Day reception honoring Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny. About 200 people donned green ties and shawls for the event. O'Malley's participation as a performer was a bit of a surprise. Bobby Caina Calvan of The Boston Globe , the print pool reporter for the event, said the crowd largely blocked his view of O'Malley.

On behalf of the taxpayers I just wanted to thank Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for wasting $125 million tax dollars on another failed government program, in this case, Maryland's health exchange website ( "Signup period bumps to end," April 1). Not to worry. There is plenty more in the state and federal treasury for the two of them to gamble with. Let them just throw money at anything they feel is necessary, and the clueless Democrats in Maryland will continue to vote for them.
