A Maryland house committee rejected a bill that would have banned same-sex marriage and stopped the state from recognizing same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.
The house of delegates judiciary committee voted down the proposal by Baltimore County delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr., according to the Baltimore Sun.
Burns introduced the bill in January, as the state attorney general, Doug Gansler, was reportedly preparing to issue an opinion on out-of-state marriage recognition.
Other bills to ban same-sex marriage in Maryland have been proposed in the past but have been unable to reach a floor vote.
