WV House GOP To Force Vote on Gay Marriage Ban

Jim Burroway

February 23rd, 2010

Republicans in the West Virginia House say that voting on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage is an “urgent” issue and should be voted on by the full 100-member House:

They also argue that the House leadership is keeping the issues away from a vote because it doesn’t want Democrats on record opposing measures that are appealing to conservative-leaning West Virginians or because conservative-leaning Democrats might break away. …Republicans admit the bills they want considered have little chance of passing the Legislature, but they say the issues are urgent enough that West Virginians deserve to see action on them, one way or another.

So I guess that means gay marriage is coming to West Virginia any moment now since it’s so urgent? *rolls eyes*
