SCORECARD M EAS U R I N G S U PP ORT F OR E QUALITY I N TH E 111TH CON G R E S S


Dear Friends, With fair-minded leadership and a president supporting, rather than vetoing, measures to protect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, the 111th Congress passed two historic bills that are now the law of the land. Even with Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress, it is important to remember that a majority of lawmakers were not consistent supporters of all pro-equality legislation. Thanks to the hard work of the LGBT community and our allies, we were able to build majorities for important legislation in this Congress. The Human Rights Campaign was a part of historic developments, including legislative repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the first federal statute to explicitly protect our entire community in the hate crimes law, and confirmation of the first Latina Supreme Court Justice. The fight to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” faced many twists and turns due to the determined opposition of Senate Republican leaders. After the successful votes in the House and in the Senate Armed Services Committee to attach repeal language to the National Defense Authorization Act, a minority of senators twice blocked the chamber from even considering the legislation. Exceptional leadership by Reps. Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.) and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Harry Reid (D-Nev.) secured successful House and Senate votes in the final days of the 111th Congress, allowing a freestanding repeal bill to be signed into law by President Obama before the end of 2010. The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which became law in October 2009, was a major step in our work toward equal legal protections for our community. Now, the entire LGBT community is a part of the civil rights laws of our nation. This law is itself important but also paves the way for other critical protections. The Senate confirmed two of the most LGBT-friendly Supreme Court justices in history, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, and HRC was proud to have supported their nominations. We also helped defeat measures that would have harmed the LGBT community — one to prevent the District of Columbia from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and the other preventing governments from protecting their citizens through needleexchange programs.

For the first time, House and Senate committees approved important legislation to provide equal benefits to federal employees with same-sex partners. Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) and Sen. Lieberman worked tirelessly to get this important legislative action on the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act. The 111th Congress was also a time for us to build support for our legislative agenda. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would prohibit employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, had a record 46 Senate co-sponsors and 204 House cosponsors. Additionally, this was the first time the Senate included gender identity in this crucial legislation. Measures to eliminate unfair taxes on same-sex couples’ health insurance, provide early treatment for HIV and provide equal treatment under our immigration laws now have more co-sponsors than ever before. The Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, was first introduced in the 111th Congress and had 121 co-sponsors. We will keep working to pass these pieces of legislation until LGBT people are fully equal under law. Although our great champion and friend, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), did not live to see the hate crimes bill signed into law, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.) provided courageous leadership for which we are all grateful. In the House, openly-gay Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Baldwin and Jared Polis (D-Colo.) led the charge for our civil rights, joined by countless allies. There is still much work to do. We need to pass a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act. We need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, expand funding and treatment for HIV/AIDS, and ensure that our families are equal under law. As you read this scorecard, see how your representative and senators measured up for the past two years. Our goal is full equality. It is up to you, their constituents, to get them there. You can make the difference.

Sincerely,

Joe Solmonese President, Human Rights Campaign 111TH CONGRESS
