Gay nups bill is off GOP agenda
Republicans have abandoned banning gay marriage this year, the Senate’s leader said yesterday.
A constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman grew less urgent because 13 states banned gay nuptials in November elections, said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.).
When asked if the legislation will be introduced, Frist replied, “Maybe not this year, but in all likelihood in this Congress.”
“It may be this year,” he added a moment later, sounding unsure during a “Fox News Sunday” interview.
