Groups set to push Legislature for gay-marriage ban in WV

Submitted without comment

West Virginia legislators should expect a push for a constitutional amendment ruling out same-sex marriage, in the absence of new programs or big-ticket proposals during this budget-conscious session.The Family Policy Council of West Virginia began the drive last year, when it unsuccessfully tried to pressure Gov. Joe Manchin to add the topic to a special session.

From Del. Webster –

House Judiciary Chairwoman Carrie Webster, D-Kanawha, expect lawmakers will instead be busy finding ways to shore up the state’s economy as the recession continues.”Our focus almost exclusively should be on doing as much as we can with what little we have,” Webster said. “We need to keep people working. If we have ended the session on issues like that … I think we will have done a disservice to the public.”
