Federal Marriage Constitutional Amendment
On Passage
House Roll Call No. 484
108th Congress, 2nd Session

Failed: 227-186 (see complete tally)
On September 30, 2004, House rejected -- by a vote of 227 to 186 --  H.J. Res. 106, 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. A two-third majority (290 votes, if all members are voting) is needed to pass a constitutional amendment. The ACLU opposed this amendment. (Roll Call Vote No. 484)
