the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
Full passage of ENDA would make it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. It is already illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, nationality, religion, age or disability. [more inside]

Representative Gene Green has introduced H.R.5430
(hopefully, they'll have the text up soon), which would control collection of personal data over the net. I guess this is a backlash from some companies'
policies, but does it go too far?
