Rep. Tim Huelskamp said he will join other conservative legislators in an effort to restore the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act.
Today the Supreme Court ruled section 3 of DOMA as unconstitutional, effectively restoring federal rights and benefits to legally married same-sex couples.
“My response to this will be later this week to file a federal marriage amendment,” Huelskamp said at a Conversation with Conservatives lunch this morning.
Huelskamp told Politico that he hopes states will define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.
Meanwhile, rallies are breaking out across the country as Americans celebrate today’s monumental victories reinforcing the fundamental values of our country: justice and equality.
