U.S. Senate Debates Federal Marriage Amendment
NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with NPR's Eric Niiler about the debate on Capitol Hill over the Federal Marriage Amendment. If passed, it would define marriage exclusively as the union of a man and a woman. The U.S. Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on the amendment. The measure is unlikely to get the needed two-thirds majority to pass, but promises to be an issue in the run-up to the November elections.
