This video contains excerpts from the 2004 Minnesota
State Senate Session when the Marriage Amendment bill was originally
introduced. This video
provides just a few examples of the tactics used by DFL Senate majority
leadership to block the bill from coming to a vote on the floor of the Senate. These tactics
included prematurely adjourning committee meetings, ignoring the bill
sponsors' requests to be recognized in general sessions, manipulating
parliamentary procedures to control the direct of the session, and
introducing an alternative amendment bill that did nothing to define
marriage. These same tactics were used during the 2005 session to
once again block the bill.
