There's been no news about house committee hearings on the various Domestic Partner bills. Will these marriage amendments scare Speaker Margaret Kelliher?

13 House DFLers voted for the Bachmann amendment when it went through the House in 2005. Will these DFLers be willing to do something different on the Domestic Partner benefit bills?
