Wyoming Senate Passes Anti-Same-Sex Marriage Amendment

Posted by | January 27, 2011 20:36 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Wyoming State Senate passed an Amendment to its constitution that would prohibit recognition of same-sex marriages from outside the state.

The vote was 20-10, the minimum two-thirds majority needed for constitutional amendments.

As it goes to the House, Senate Joint Resolution 5 also contains language to allow a future Legislature to recognize civil unions.

If the bill passes in the House, the amendment will be placed on the November 2012 general election ballot.
