2nd Discharge Motion Derailed in House

House Republicans have again been rebuffed in their attempts to kick-start a stalled item from their agenda, The Associated Press reports.

The House voted 68-30 along party lines Tuesday to postpone a motion to discharge from committee a proposed constitutional amendment defining marriage.

"After the vote postponing the motion, the committee that sets the House's daily agenda removed it from the chamber's calendar," the article said. "The House Rules Committee similarly exiled a Monday GOP discharge motion into legislative limbo."
