Marriage protection act clears key US Senate hurdle

Source: Axios

“The Respect for Marriage Act, a bill to codify protections for same-sex and interracial marriage, on Wednesday cleared a major procedural hurdle in the Senate after garnering enough support from Senate Republicans. A motion to proceed to debate on the bill passed 62-37, more than the 60 votes needed to break a Senate filibuster, signaling the legislation has the support to pass the chamber. A dozen Senate Republicans voted with all Democrats to pass the bill.” (11/16/22)
