    I just feel like this law will need to be done separately.

    But I also suspect the only way to move Congress on a standalone bill that offers relief to 30K will be large scale civil disobedience actions.

    Standalone LGBT bills don't move in Congress (and UAFA is a prime example). They just don't serve enough constiutents to warrant a spot on the calendar.

    But if a mess is made, they may move to move the story out of the headlines and stop the heckling at their fundraisers.
