Marriage Protection Amendment
The Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA), H. J. Res 32, would amend the United States Constitution to protect marriage, family, and children by affirming marriage as the union between one man and one woman for all federal and state purposes. Congressman Tim Huelskamp introduced the MPA first in the 113th Congress and again in the 114th Congress on February 12th, 2015.
Although the MPA has not received a floor vote since 2006, over 95% of the House Republicans who were in office then voted for the MPA, including Speaker Boehner.
Rep. Huelskamp is the only Member of Congress who authored one of the thirty state constitutional amendments that defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman. In 2005, 70% of Kansans voted for the state constitutional amendment authored by then-state Senator Huelskamp.
