Frank: LGBT Bills Dead in 2011

Rep. Barney Frank says LGBT legislation will have no chance of passing in Congress in 2011, given that the House will be under Republican control.

"Next year there's no chance of anything happening," he told the Washington Blade in an interview Tuesday. "There's zero chance."

Frank told the Blade he is confident the Senate will join President Obama in blocking antigay legislation the Republicans might try to push through over the next two years.

"It will be a status quo," he said. "They don't have the votes to hurt us but we don't have the votes to advance anything in the cause."
