Morning Sweep

Several amendments have been added to the federal hate crimes bill (part of the Defense Department authorization bill) in the Senate.

Funding for an expanded F-22 fighter program has been removed from the Defense Department authorization bill. This is good news for the hate crimes portion, as Obama has threatened to veto the entire bill if the planes were part of it.

a California Senator has introduced a bill to provide full recognition of legal same-sex marriages performed out-of-state.
