Bill to ban discrimination against gays clears Republican roadblock

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A White House-backed bill to ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity narrowly cleared a Republican roadblock on Monday in the Senate.

The vote was 61-30, one more than needed, to begin consideration of the measure that is likely to win Senate passage by the end of the week. At this point, however, there are no plans to bring it up in the Republican-led House of Representatives.
