Defense of Marriage Act
Supporters of gay marriage are celebrating two landmark rulings from the Supreme Court, but what does it mean for Colorado?
This week the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether two laws banning same sex marriage are legal. It comes less than a week after Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a civil unions bill in Colorado.
The matter of civil unions in Colorado will be back on the fast track now that Democrats have taken control of the legislature.
Colorado has joined four other states in defending a federal law that defines marriage as being a union only between one man and one woman when it comes to getting federal benefits.
