The White House said Tuesday that it was not prepared to endorse a federal bill that seeks nationwide LGBT protections.

Introduced by Democrats in July, the Equality Act seeks to prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in seven key areas, including credit, education, employment, federal funding, housing, jury service and public accommodations, by effectively expanding the Civil Rights Act, originally approved in 1964.

Over the weekend, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering his own bid for the White House, endorsed the proposed legislation.

When asked about the legislation by reporters, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the bill was under review by the administration.

“This is a piece of legislation that the White House does continue to review,” Earnest said. “There’s significant consequences to this bill going into effect. It has an impact on housing law and a variety of other policies in the federal government, so it’s something that’s still being carefully reviewed by the administration.”

Earnest added that while President Barack Obama supports comprehensive LGBT protections, the Equality Act “is still under review by the administration.”

“The president believes the passage of comprehensive legislation that protects LGBT Americans from discrimination would mark an important step toward that outcome,” Earnest said. “So, we would applaud the efforts of members of Congress to try to advance that goal, but when it comes to this specific piece of legislation, it’s something that is still under review by the administration.”
