Senator Dianne Feinstein: I'll Introduce Legislation to Repeal DOMA
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has issued a statement following news that the Justice Dept. will no longer defend Section 3 of DOMA in court:
"As a Member of the Judiciary Committee, it is my intention to introduce legislation that will once and for all repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. My own belief is that when two people love each other and enter the contract of marriage, the Federal government should honor that. I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It was the wrong law then; it is the wrong law now; and it should be repealed."
