Senate advances Respect for Marriage Act in bipartisan 62-37 procedural vote
November 17, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: In July, the House of Representatives passed the Respect for Marriage Act in a 267-157 vote. An amended version of the legislation has now passed the Senate in a 62-37 procedural vote, paving the way for a final Senate vote.
The US Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed opposition to the legislation in July and November, as it codifies same-sex marriage in federal law and poses a threat to religious liberty.
