Several House Democrats will introduce legislation next week to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 lawthat bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, The Advocate reportedyesterday.
The bill, sponsored by Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) Jared Polis (D-Col.) and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), already has the support of more than 50 additional lawmakers, The Advocate said.
Nadler told the Bay Area Reporterin July that the bill would amount to a full repeal of DOMA, including Section 2, which advises states to disregard same-sex marriages that have been legally performed in other states, and Section 3, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
As recently as June, President Obama has backed a full repeal of DOMA.
