The Equality Act Passes In the House Of Representatives

According to Business Insider, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Equality Act, which makes sweeping reforms to the Civil Rights Act to include protections for LGBTQ Americans.

The bill passed with unanimous support from Democrats, while Republican critics said it "chips away at religious freedoms." There is no indication the bill will receive a floor vote in the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans.
