DAVENPORT, Iowa: Proponents of same-sex marriage are aware of the Maine ballot measure that repealed the same-sex marriage law. Now, they say, it could happen in their state. Recently, Iowa critics of gay marriage have stated that they will begin to push for a referendum on the Iowa ballot. According to Bryan English, spokesman for the Iowa Family Policy Center, "When the people of a state are given the chance to vote, they always support the only definition of marriage -- one man and one woman.”

The Iowa Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in early 2009 and critics will push legislature even more to approve of a referendum.[1]
