"I respect the deeply held beliefs on both sides of this issue. The simple fact remains that the federal government has a responsibility to ensure all legally married couples are treated equally under federal law - and this bill would achieve that proper standard."

-- New York Republican Congressman Richard Hanna announcing his support for the Respect for Marriage Act. Hanna is the second Republican to endorse the bill.
