Repealing Ohio Marriage Ban


Rep. Tyrone Yates, a Democrat representing Cincinnati, introduced a resolution on Tuesday to repeal Ohio's constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Voters approved the same-sex marriage ban in 2004 by a 24-point margin, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

If the resolution passes by a three-fifths vote in each chamber of the legislature, the repeal will be put before Ohio voters on the May 4, 2010, ballot.

Yates's resolution would require significant bipartisan support to make it to the ballot. According to the Columbus Dispatch, "Even if every Democrat voted yes... it would fall well short of the required votes."
