House Whip confirms "House Will Act on DOMA by the End of the Week"


The NYT Caucus blog reports:

With Republicans upset at the Obama administration’s abandonment of the Defense of Marriage Act, Representative Eric Cantor, the Virginia Republican and majority leader, said on Monday that the House would take action by the end of the week to make certain the law is defended against legal challenges.

Mr. Cantor said he agreed with Speaker John A. Boehner that the House should step in and suggested that most members of the House find it disappointing that the White House has decided unilaterally not to defend a duly passed law.

Thank you for all your hard work on this! Please continue to take action here.
