FMA failed

Direct from an HRC email:

In a sound defeat, 27 moderate and conservative Republicans joined 158 Democrats and 1 Independent Thursday in opposing the Marriage Protection Amendment (previously the “Federal Marriage Amendment”) on the House Floor.

The amendment needed a 2/3’s majority; the final vote was 227 for, 186 against.

I’ve sent a thank you note to my representative, one of the Republicans who voted against the amendment.
