Federal Marriage Amendment
The Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) would amend the United States Constitution to protect marriage, family and children by defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Congressman Tim Huelskamp introduced the FMA on June 28, 2013.
The FMA has not been introduced in more than two years and has not received a floor vote since 2006. 95% of the current House Republicans who were in office in 2006 voted for the FMA, including Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor.
Rep. Huelskamp is the only Member of Congress who authored one of the thirty state constitutional amendments that prohibits homosexual marriage and polygamous marriage. In 2005, 70% of Kansans voted for the state constitutional amendment authored by then-state Senator Huelskamp.
