ENDA Activists Disrupt House Committee Hearing


A preliminary report indicates that activists from the grassroots group GetEQUAL disrupted a House Committee on Education and Labor meeting Wednesday morning to demand action on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

The activists want the committee to schedule the bill for markup and move it to the floor for a vote.

Shortly after 10 A.M., GetEQUAL activist Robin McGehee tweeted, "About to disrupt full committee of Ed & Labor & deliver markers 2 Chairman Miller demanding markup/House vote 4 #GetENDA 2 @GetEQUAL."

The Dallas Voice offers more details, and a link to video. Rewind to the beginning to see the disruption.

"Activists from GetEQUAL interrupted a House committee hearing this morning to demand a markup of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act," reports the Voice. "The activists approached Chairman George Miller, D-California, and attempted to hand him a magic marker."
