Iowa Senate Will Not Pass Gay Marriage Ban

Written by 

The top state senator of Iowa continues and will continue to block any attempts wanting to constitutionally repeal gay marriage in the state.

Michael Gronstal, Democrat and leader of the Senate's majority, reiterated his opposition during an interview on Iowa Public Television but the republican leader, Jerry Behn, however wants to evoke this ban at a forthcoming session. Lawmakers would have to vote in favor of a constitutional amendment during sessions before voters.

Thanks to the recent election of Liz Mathis, the majority thus remains Democrat and stays opposed to this proposal.
