Virginia Foxx Calls For DOMA Reinforcement In Defense Bill

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has proposed an amendment to the House Defense Appropriations Bill (HR 2219) that would reinforce the effect of the Defense of Marriage Act throughout the Department of Defense. The Foxx-Burton Amendment reads: “No funds under the act may be used for activities in contravention of Public Law 104-199, the Defense of Marriage Act” (PDF). The House will debate the bill later today.
