DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Six months after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, gay rights and same-sex marriages in Dallas are back on Monday’s agenda.

The Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, specifically protects the rights of the states to refuse to recognize or give effect to marriages between persons of the same sex.

The budget, finance and audit committee will give an update at City Hall on the impact of the last June’s ruling last. They will also discuss how Dallas can improve the lives of people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Sixteen states and Washington D.C. now allow gay marriage. Also, earlier this month the senate made it illegal to fire someone based on their sexual orientation.
