SCORECARD

M eas u ring S u pp ort f or E quality in th e 112th Congress


Dear Friends, I’m pleased to bring you the Human Rights Campaign’s Scorecard for the 112th Congress which shows continuous progress being made for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, while at the same time shows how our community has had to face uphill battles due to anti-LGBT leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. With allies in the U.S. Senate, the Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA) — which would repeal the outrageously named Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. The legislation was passed out of committee for the first time ever, thanks to the leadership of Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and the bill’s lead sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). There was also a successful hearing and markup of the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act (DPBO) — led by Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) — the bill to bring the federal government in line with a majority of major U.S. employers in offering health benefits to the domestic partners of federal workers. Historically, the Senate confirmed three openly gay federal judges — breaking down a barrier that was only pierced once before in our nation’s history. And the inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) got a Senate Committee hearing where, for the first time, a transgender witness testified in its favor, thanks to Chairman Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). In contrast, in the House, anti-equality members and leaders moved forward with attacks on our families and even lesbian and gay service members. Amendments were offered to spending bills that would reaffirm DOMA and restrict money for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal training materials for military chaplains. Thankfully, none of these measures became law. House Republican leaders have also continued their full-throated defense of DOMA in court, wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on a discriminatory law. While the House leadership has been an obstacle, that did not stop us from continuing the important work of educating members, reaching new allies and building support for our critical bills. In both the House and Senate, we are scoring members on their co-sponsorship of ENDA, RMA, DPBO, the Tax Parity for Health Plan Beneficiaries Act — which would end the unfair taxation of domestic partnership health benefits — and the

Uniting American Families Act — which would treat binational same-sex couples the same as those who are recognized as legally married. Much of our success is due to leaders like Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Reps. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.). Central to all of these efforts have been our four openly gay members, Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and David Cicilline (D-R.I.). But we know fair-minded Americans care about more than just co-sponsorships and votes on bills, which is why for the first time in this scorecard we are noting whether or not members of Congress have taken an affirmative position in favor of marriage equality. While marriage-related issues can arise in Congress, the baseline question about where a senator or representative stands on this issue is of great importance to all of us, and notably, Rep. Ros-Lehtinen became the first currently serving Republican member of Congress to express her support. Of course, there remains much work to do. With bullying of LGBT students a national problem, the federal government has a key role to play and we must continue to build support for the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA) and the Safe Schools Improvement Act (SSIA). We need to pass a fully inclusive ENDA, repeal DOMA, expand funding and treatment for HIV/AIDS and ensure that our families are equal under law. With this resource, you can see where your own elected officials stand and whether they are moving this country forward or holding us back. With that knowledge, we can move toward a future where the dark walls of discrimination fall and every American is guaranteed their full and equal citizenship. Sincerely,

Chad Griffin President Human Rights Campaign

E Respect for Marriage Act (S. 598) (Co-Sponsorship) Senators were asked to co-sponsor legislation, introduced on March 16, 2011, that would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and ensure the federal government respects lawful marriages between same-sex couples. The measure had 33 co-sponsors: Democrats 32; Republicans 0; Independents 1. F Tax Parity for Health Plan Beneficiaries Act (S. 1171) (Co-Sponsorship) Senators were asked to co-sponsor legislation, introduced on June 9, 2011, that would equalize the tax treatment of employer-provided health coverage for domestic partners and other non-spouse, non-dependent beneficiaries. The measure had 31 co-sponsors: Democrats 28; Republicans 1; Independents 2. G Uniting American Families Act (S. 821) (Co-Sponsorship) Senators were asked to co-sponsor legislation, introduced on April 14, 2011, that would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to provide same-sex partners of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents the same immigration benefits that legal, different-sex spouses of U.S. permanent residents enjoy. The measure had 30 co-sponsors: Democrats 27; Republicans 1; Independents 2. H Domestic Partnership Benefits & Obligations Act (S. 1910) (Co-Sponsorship) Senators were asked to co-sponsor legislation, introduced on November 18, 2011, that would provide spousal health-care, retirement and other benefits to all federal civilian employees with qualifying same-sex domestic partners. The measure had 31 co-sponsors: Democrats 28; Republicans 1; Independents 2.

Agrees that gay and lesbian couples should not be denied the ability to pledge their love and commitment through the civil institution of marriage, and that two committed adults of the same sex should be able to receive a government-issued marriage license, while religious institutions retain their right to determine which marriages they will perform.
