Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) To Introduce DOMA Repeal Next Week

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) will introduce a bill repealing DOMA next week.
The Advocate has learned that Democratic representative Jerrold Nadler of New York will be introducing legislation to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act next Tuesday. A Democratic aide confirmed that a press conference to announce the bill will be held September 15 at 11 a.m. at the House Triangle. The source said the bill currently has just over 50 cosponsors, but Congressman Nadler’s office has not yet officially circulated a letter to his fellow House members.
With a Democratic supermajority in the House, the bill has the potential to pass easily. We'll see about that.
