On July 14, 2004, the Senate voted 48 to 50 on a cloture motion against forcing a vote on S.J. Res. 40, an amendment to the Constitution that would deny the right to marry to all same-sex couples and jeopardize all other protections that same-sex couples have under state or local law. The ACLU urged Senators to vote against forcing a vote. (Roll Call Vote No. 155)
