Minnesota lawmakers file bill to block vote on same-sex marriage ban
In the last week (the week of January 9, 2012) to introduce bills for consideration during the 2012 legislative session, lawmakers introduced a bill regarding the November 2012 vote on same-sex marriage.
Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to provide that only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota?
The recently filed bill, however, would remove the proposed constitutional amendment from the ballot and block it from a public vote.
The constitutional amendment was referred to the ballot on May 21, 2011 following approval by a majority of the members of each chamber of the Minnesota State Legislature
The 2012 legislative session convenes on January 24, 2012.
