    House Votes 233-194 For Statutory Curb On Same-Sex Marriage; LB Reps. Rohrabacher Votes Yes, Millender-McDonald Votes No

    (July 21, 2004) -- After the U.S. Senate blocked a proposed constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, the House of Representatives today passed (233-194) and sent to the Senate a statutory curb on same-sex marriage.

    The proposed statute, titled the "Marriage Protection Act of 2004," states that "No court created by Act of Congress shall have any jurisdiction, and the Supreme Court shall have no appellate jurisdiction, to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, section 1738C or this section."

    LB Congressmembers split on the vote. Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald (D, LB-Carson) voted no. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R, HB-LB-PV) voted yes. To view the full list of recorded "yeas" and "nays," click here.
