Constitutional amendment in West Virginia fails
Those seeking a constitutional amendment on marriage haven't give up. The "Family Policy Council of West Virginia” is focusing on a Senate version of the resolution. The group is also planning a rally against same-sex marriage at the Capitol.
The law seems particularly mean-spirited given that same-sex marriage is already illegal in West Virginia.
But this bill isn’t the only mean-spirited measure the Republicans hope to present to the legislature in the coming weeks. Republican delegates plan to try to force a vote on a bill to require drug-testing of all welfare recipients.
