3 Antigay Amendments Proposed in Defense Spending Bill
Rep. Dan Burton, of Indiana, introduced two other amendments to the defense spending bill Wednesday. The first would prohibit federal funds from being used to facilitate civil unions or marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples, as outlined by DOMA. The other would prevent the military from providing training on "don't ask, don't tell" repeal to personnel in combat zones.
