The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a bill to codify same-sex marriage.

The Senate passed the same measure last week in a 61-36 vote.

The bill, dubbed the Respect for Marriage Act, passed the House 258-169 and will head to Joe Biden’s desk for a signature.

Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill.

NBC News reported:

The House passed legislation Thursday that enshrines federal protections for marriages of same-sex and interracial couples.

The vote of 258-169 sends the Respect for Marriage Act to President Joe Biden, who praised Congress for passing the bill and is expected to sign it into law. It comes after the Senate passed the same bill last week by a vote of 61-36.

Democrats were unified in favor of the bill, while most Republicans in both chambers voted against it. Thirty-nine House Republicans supported the legislation Thursday and one voted present.
