US Senate to Vote on DC Marriage

Among a group of health care amendments to be considered by Republican senators this week is one introduced by Sen. Bob Bennett that would force a referendum on same-sex marriage in Washington, D.C.
According to the D.C. Agenda, Bennett filed the amendment, titled "To protect the democratic process and the right of the people of the District of Columbia to define marriage," Wednesday morning. He will formally introduce it Wednesday or Thursday.
While it is likely to fail, it could force lawmakers to go on record with their stance on marriage equality.
