Two US Senators have introduced a bill that would re-empower all 50 states and give them the right to decide how marriage is to be defined. The legislation is called the, “State Marriage Defense Act” and is intended to safeguard each state from the over-reaching arm of the federal government.
U.S. Senators Introduce Legislation to Protect Right of States to Preserve Definition of Marriage

In a Thursday press release, Senators Cruz and Lee introduced the “State Marriage Defense Act” (S. 2024), which would preserve states’ ability to define marriage in a manner consistent with the values of their citizens. The act would also “protect states from an out of control administration that is seeking to force same sex marriage upon states that define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.”
“I support traditional marriage,” Cruz said in the statement. “The Obama Administration should not be trying to force gay marriage on all 50 states. We should respect the states, and the definition of marriage should be left to democratically elected legislatures, not dictated from Washington. This bill will safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for its residents.”
