Senator Maria Chapelle Nadal led the filibuster.


Actuality:  CHAP.WAV
Run Time:  00:15
Description: "My concern here is that every class is protected and the language that I see, just one class of people is protected."

Democrats oppose the bill because they say it is unfair.

Senators say they want to understand all the language in the bill before voting.
