(Worthy News) – The Senate voted Monday night to advance a bipartisan agreement to the House-passed Respect for Marriage Act.
The vote to close debate, which ran for some two and a half hours, was 61-35, according to CSPAN Capitol Hill Producer Craig Caplan. The 61 votes meant it reached the 60-vote threshold to avoid a filibuster.
Senate Democrats are quickly moving to pass the bill while the party still controls the House. Republicans are on the verge of winning the House majority and would be unlikely to take up the issue next year.
