Senator Levin cosponsors the Respect for Marriage Act
October 20, 2011
We've had lots of good news on the federal front lately! Today, Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) announced that he will cosponsor the Respect for Marriage Act, the bill that will overturn DOMA. Levin's support brings us to 31 Senators who support ending federal marriage discrimination.
This comes just one week after Senator Leahy announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a mark-up and eventual vote on the Respect for Marriage Act sometime within the next month.
We thank Senator Levin for his support and hope that his colleague Senator Stabenow will join him in cosponsoring this crucial legislation. We'll continue working with our supporters in Michigan and across the country to grow support for the Respect for Marriage Act, especially leading up to next month's hearing.
