Issue Position: Gay Rights

Issue Position

By:
Location: Unknown

I am a strong supporter of gay rights in Congress. I have authored legislation to expand the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to include domestic partners and same-sex married couples in all of the benefits of the FMLA. I have also been a critic of President Bush's Support of a Constitutional Amendment to ban same-sex marriage. On September 30, 2004 I voted against a Constitutional Amendment to ban same-sex marriage. This measure failed to receive the 2/3 vote required to pass a Constitutional Amendment. I will also oppose any future attempts to add discrimination to the Constitution with an amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
