A proposal to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage was being considered by the Idaho state senate on Wednesday. The proposal has already been approved by the Idaho house of representatives and by a senate committee. Now it's before the full senate for a vote.
Similar proposals to ban same-sex marriage have failed in each of the last two years in the Idaho senate. Last year a proposed ban fell three votes short of the two-thirds majority it needed to pass.
Idaho is one of about 10 states this year considering constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage. According to the gay rights group Lambda Legal, 18 states have already amended their constitutions to deprive gay couples of marriage equality. (Advocate.com)
