Would the proposed Marriage Amendment Affect the Judge Bill?

In 2002, the President signed a law which extended benefits to be paid to the domestic partners of firefighters and police officers who die in the line of duty, permanently extending a federal death benefit to same-sex couples for the first time.

There is a significant debate over the extent of the proposed FMA, but I wonder if this bill would immediately be nullified.
