(DAILY SIGNAL) After more than 300 days, a bill to safeguard religious liberty in the marriage debate appears to be gaining momentum in committee.
The legislation has attracted 164 co-sponsors since it was referred in June to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Now, with “the majority of the majority’s support,” Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, says circumstances “bode much better” for the bill.
