Senior Senator John McCain (R-AZ) opposes the bill, and will miss the vote(s) because he will be in New York taping Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, missing the senatorial action on ENDA ("Employment Non-Discrimination Act"). It was noted last week that Cindy McCain, his wife, signed a peition in favor of the measure, in spite of (or, perhaps because of?) John's opposition to it.
Junior Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) article on The Huffington Post today. He voted for ENDA as a Representative in 2007, but says he is opposed to this year's model - which adds gender identity. Flake says he is concerned with increased legal actions, though the article cites studies that say that that has not been in a problem when cities and states have passed similar measures.
