Although the House of Representatives was out of session, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) was still hard at work! This week was a great opportunity to garner support for H.R. 3829, the State Marriage Defense Act. Introduced by Congressman Randy Weber (R-Texas), this bill confirms the rights of states to define marriage for their citizens while affirming the 10th amendment and states that, for federal benefits purposes, marriage is determined by the place of domicile and not the place of celebration. In an effort to move this resolution forward, CWALAC met with numerous congressional staffers, explained the necessity of this legislation, and urged their members to co-sponsor H.R. 3829.
