Blunt Backs Respect for Marriage Act with Religious Liberty Amendment

November 16, 2022

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today on the bipartisan religious liberty amendment to the Respect for Marriage Act:

“This bill is now designed to accomplish two things. People who are legally married in one state have the same protections and responsibilities in any other state that are offered to and required of marriages. And, this legislation enhances the religious freedom for all Americans by protecting religious organizations from retaliation by federal agencies due to their views on marriage. I believe it’s better for Congress to clarify these issues than for federal judges to make these decisions.”
