As Kansas supporters of gay marriage celebrated two U.S. Supreme Court rulings Wednesday, Republican Congressman Tim Huelskamp said he would take action.
The Supreme Court struck down a provision of a federal law that denies federal benefits to married gay couples. It also cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California.
Many Kansas residents celebrated at the rainbow-colored "Equality House" in Topeka. Leaders of the Planting Peace organization there unfurled a large banner from the roof of the house that said, "Bye, Bye DOMA."
