Utah Senator again tries to block D.C. Freedom to Marry
March 24, 2010
Reported by Tim Craig for The Washington Post:
"Bennett is emerging as the most stalwart congressional opponent to the freedom to marry in the District. Earlier this month, he sought to attach a similar amendment to a Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization bill. But that amendment was ruled out of order.
"Bennett's latest attempt to force a referendum on the city's marriage equality law, which went into effect March. 3, has the support of GOP Sens. Roger Wicker (Miss), Pat Roberts (Kansas), Orrin Hatch (Utah), James M. Inhofe (Ok), and John Cornyn (Texas), according to the DCist blog.
"But Senate Democrats, who are trying to keep all GOP amendments off the reconciliation bill, are widely expected to kill Bennett's amendment, which was first reported by the New York Times."
