Equality Texas Opposes Federal Marriage Amendment

(May 18, 2006) This morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along partisan lines to send the Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) to the full Senate for consideration. The proposed constitutional amendment restricts marriage to a [partnership] between a man and a woman. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has committed to bring the FMA up for a full Senate vote in early June.

In the first 24 hours of our advocacy campaign, [Texas] Senators Hutchison and Cornyn each received 700 letters from their constituents letting them know they do NOT support writing discrimination into the United States Constitution.
