It’s Heeeeere: DOMA Repeal Hits the House

Rep. Jerry Nadler’s Respect for Marriage Act, which has 76 sponsors and would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and eliminate its harmful effects, was introduced today in the House. Not that it has much chance of going anywhere at the moment. Something about that divisive “certainty provision,” which guarantees so-called “travel rights” — which keeps even gay marriages valid to the federal government even if a couple travels to another a state — that are sure to cause everyone to freak out about state sovereignty.
