The House of Representatives passed the Equality Act on Thursday afternoon, which will impact abortion, marriage, family, gender, sports, and more.
In a 224-206 vote, the House passed the Equality Act. H.R. 5 would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act in order to prevent “discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation.” Three Republicans voted with Democrats in favor of the Equality Act.
Democrats tried to pass the Equality Act in 2019, but it was killed by a Republican-controlled Senate.
THESE THREE REPUBLICANS VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE EQUALITY ACT:
- Pennsylvania Rep. Fitzpatrick
- New York Rep. Katko
- New York Rep. Reed
In 2019, there were eight House Republicans who voted in favor of the Equality Act, including Indiana Rep. Susan Brooks, Florida Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, Texas Rep. Will Hurd, Oregon Rep. Greg Walden, and New York Reps. John Katko, Tom Reed, and Elise Stefanik, Fox News reported.
