The Senate passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would put those protections in place, in November.

However, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) called the bill "unnecesary" last week, indicating that he currently has no intention of bringing the legislation up for a vote in the lower chamber.

In 2007, 183 members of the House voted against ENDA when a majority of their constituents supported the measure, according to the Williams Institute.
