Congressman Kline Blocks Discrimination Protections

Congressman John Kline, Chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, led the charge yesterday against progress for LGBT students by blocking the Student Non Discrimination Act – legislation that would ensure students have access to a safe public education and a secure learning environment free from violence and intimidation.

“Apparently Congressman John Kline would rather let Minnesota students be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation than stand up for Americans’ rights,” said Tyrone Gayle of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “It’s a shame that Congressman Kline and his Republican allies killed anti-discrimination legislation, but with a record of always caving to the extremists of his party, Minnesota families shouldn’t be surprised.”
