A Senate panel led by Kansas Republican Sam Brownback has narrowly approved the Marriage Protection Amendment. The legislation would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. In order to become part of the Constitution, it would have to be approved by two-thirds majorities in both houses of Congress and then ratified by at least 38 states. A similar effort led by President George W. Bush failed in both chambers of Congress last year. Source. KHBS/KHOG, Thehometownchannel.com.
