The U.S. Senate voted on a bill that enhances legal protections for same sex and interracial marriage.

The U.S. Senate voted on a bill that enhances legal protections for same sex and interracial marriage.

The Respect for Marriage Act passed 61-36 and states that same-sex marriages will be federally protected.

The bill will now be sent back to The White House and President Biden will need to sign it before it becomes a law.

The bill would require individual states to recognize another state’s legal marriage, although it stops short of setting a national requirement that all states must legalize same-sex marriage.
