U.S Representatives Tammy Baldwin and Jared Polis spoke at an international conference of gay politicians in San Francisco and stated that they are expecting a domestic partner benefits bill and the employment bill to read the floor by early 2010, according to an article by the Associated Press.
These two bills will protect all gay and transgender employees from job discrimination as well as provide health coverage for the same-sex partners.

“Hopefully we will see those three pieces of legislation make it all the way, or damn close,” said Baldwin.
