Iowa Republicans Propose Ban On Same-Sex Marriage

Des Moines’ CBS affiliate reports:

Some Republican lawmakers want to change the state constitution to ban gay marriage. House Joint Resolution 8 was introduced in the Iowa House on Tuesday. The bill has eight sponsors: Brad Sherman, Luana Stoltenberg, Mark Cisneros, Helena Hayes, Zach Dieken, Skyler Wheeler, Mark Thompson and Thomas Gerhold.

The resolution wants to add the following amendment to the state’s constitution: “Marriage. In accordance with the laws of nature and nature’s God, the state of Iowa recognizes the definition of marriage to be the solemnized union between one human biological male and one human biological female.”

If the resolution is adopted, it would be published and referred to the next general assembly for adoption. If adopted, voters would then vote on the amendment.
