Congressman Jared Polis on The Respect for Marriage Act


Rep. Jared Polis, a Democrat, represents Colorado's 2nd Congressional District. He co-authored The Respect for Marriage Act.
[The federal DOMA] prevents states from determining what marriages to allow or not allow by second guessing them at the federal level ... The Respect for Marriage Act will provide couples with much-needed certainty that their lawful marriages will be honored under federal law and that they will have the same access to federal responsibilities and rights as all other married couples.
