GOP to Push to Overturn DC Gay Marriage Law

Ad Feedback

The battle over gay marriage could soon be resurrected in Washington, D.C.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said conservative Republicans in Congress will almost certainly push a bill to overturn the city's law legalizing same sex marriage.

The measure was approved by the city council in 2009 despite efforts stay the law's mandate to recognize gay ceremonies, The Christian Post reported.

"I think RSC will push for it, and I'm certainly strongly for it. I don't know if we've made a decision, if I'll do it or let another member do it, but I'm 100 percent for it," Jordan told The Hill newspaper,

So far, every court all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked efforts to allow D.C. Voters to weigh in on the gay marriage law.
Consequently, the only way to get the legislation overturned now is through Congress.

The District of Columbia is the sixth local government to legalize such unions.
