Wyoming Anti-Gay Marriage Bill Stalls in Senate

Wyoming Anti-Gay Marriage Bill Stalls in Senate


A bill that would prohibit Wyoming from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states has stalled in the senate over court system access for couples in civil unions.

The Associated Press reports on the stalemate between the senate and house, which does not allow court access in its version of the bill. The senate amended the house bill earlier this month to allow couples in civil unions from other states to access the court system to resolve differences.

"A conference committee of Wyoming senators and representatives failed to agree on the bill on Monday and scheduled another meeting to discuss it again on Tuesday," reports the AP. "Yet some members say they're not optimistic they can reach a compromise before the legislative session ends later this week."

A proposal that would have asked voters about changing the constitution to ban marriage equality died Friday after the house missed a procedural deadline.
