Of course.

Don’t ever let a good crisis go to waste.
USA Today reported:

A Senate committee this week will put the spotlight on gay marriage, as Sen. Dianne Feinstein pushes for repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Feinstein, D-Calif., is the lead sponsor of a bill to repeal the law known as DOMA, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman and bans federal recognition of gay marriage. The Obama administration earlier this year said it would no longer defend DOMA, saying the legal landscape has changed.

Most recently, New York became the largest state to allow same-sex marriages — an action that gay rights supporters say gives momentum to similar laws across the country.

Feinstein on Tuesday is expected to be joined at a news conference by three gay couples who will talk about the roadblocks they’ve faced from DOMA. On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the existing law and discuss Feinstein’s repeal bill.
