Following voter approval of a nondiscrimination ordinance in Kalamazoo, Mich., on Tuesday, state house speaker pro tem Pam Byrnes introduced a resolution to reverse Michigan's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Michigan voters approved the ban in 2004, but Byrnes introduced a resolution on Tuesday seeking a referendum that would ask voters to amend the constitution to allow same-sex marriage, according to WWMT-TV.

"Byrnes says it's time for a change," reported the news channel on its website. "She would need super-majority votes in both the house and senate to get a same-sex [marriage] proposal on the ballot in Michigan next year."
