http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c108:H.J.RES.56:

Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo., has introduced the Federal Marriage Amendment (H.J. Res. 56) as a proposed constitutional amendment, which will remove the definition of marriage from the reach of all legislatures and courts permanently.

Text: SECTION 1. Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any State, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups.

Question: Is this the amendment, introduced in May of 2003, that President Bush is asking Congress to send out to the states? Or is there some other federal marriage amendment with different wording that is being promoted?
