Wyoming House votes down anti-gay marriage bill

Timothy Kincaid

February 14th, 2014

Yesterday we reported that the Wyoming House of Representatives had rejected a marriage equality bill by a 41 to 17 vote. Later in the day, the House also rejected an anti-gay marriage bill. (SFGate)

The state later Thursday voted down a bill sponsored by Casper Republican Rep. Gerald Gay that would have specified that Wyoming wouldn’t recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.

Cheyenne Rep. Dan Zwonitzer [R – Cheyenne] spoke against the bill, saying the “Equality State” shouldn’t take a step backward.

The House voted against introducing the bill by a vote of 31-to-29.

I suppose the message here is that the Wyoming House of Representatives is not ready to support marriage equality. Yet. But they’re on their way.

Perhaps it is time to try again for Domestic Partnerships.

The only message here is that this is a budget session.
