GetEqual said the bill had advanced to scheduled July 10 vote in the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to get it to the floor for a vote at the earliest possible date.

"Now that the federal government recognizes the legal marriages of gay couples, it would be moving the country backward to force those same couples to hide their relationships or their identities in the workplace," the statement said.
