Hate Crime Bill Stalls In U.S. Senate

A bill giving Gay and Lesbian Americans federal protection from hate crimes stalled after senate republicans refused to limit debate on the measure.

Senate republicans said afterward that the bill has no chance of passage in the House, which has rejected it twice in recent years, unless they can amend it.
