Schumer: Senate to vote on marriage equality bill this week


While the dust continues to settle on the 2022 midterm election season, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said the upper chamber will begin voting on a marriage equality bill on November 16.

“I just took steps on the Senate floor to set up a first procedural vote for Wednesday on legislation to codify marriage equality into law,” Schumer wrote on Twitter November 14. “No American should ever be discriminated against because of who they love.”
