S Amdt 2013 - Vote to adopt an amendment to S Amdt 2012 to S 815 that exempts religiously-affiliated employers from the prohibition on employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

H Amdt 1096 - Vote to adopt an amendment to HR 5326 that prohibits the use of federal funds appropriated by the bill to contravene the Defense of Marriage Act.

Source  

Highlight:
The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is a United States federal law passed by the United States Congress in 1996 and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. It defined marriage for federal purposes as the union of one man and one woman, and allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages granted under the laws of other states. All of the act's provisions, except those relating to its short title, were ruled unconstitutional or left effectively unenforceable by Supreme Court decisions in the cases of United States v. Windsor (2013) and Obergefell v. Hodges (2015), which means the law itself has been practically overturned.  A yes vote to this amendment means that money can not  be used to defy DOMA or promote same-sex marriage in contravention of DOMA.
