The city council of Washington, D.C. recently voted to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. That decision is in jeopardy with the introduction of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
So I looked up H.R. 2608 fully expecting to see at least one Tennessee member of Congress listed as a cosponsor. No dice. Maybe they haven't heard about the bill. Maybe they haven't been approached. Maybe they don't care. Maybe some of them see it as a home rule issue and are avoiding it on principle. I'd like to think it's the last of those four, but I'm not holding my breath. Still, it was a pleasant Memorial Day weekend surprise.
