Senate Passes Bill Granting Protections To Same-s3x, Interracial Marriages

The U.S. Senate on Tuesday passed a bill protecting same-s3x and interracial marriages, sending the measure to the House of Representatives for a separate vote.

The bill was approved 61-36, with support from 12 Republicans.

Titled the Respect for Marriage Act, the measure would not force states to grant marriage licenses to same-s3x couples. But it would require states to recognize all marriages that were legal where they were performed. And it would require states to protect interracial marriages by recognizing legal marriages regardless of race.
