The bill's main sponsor was Sen. Curt Meier.
According to the AP, the bill died in February, 2011.
Sen. Curt Meier and Rep. Owen Petersen announced in late December 2010 that they planned to propose the amendment in the legislature's 2011 general session. As of 2011, the state of Wyoming has a statutory ban but not a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Both representatives challenged the state's ban in a federal lawsuit in August 2010. However, the challenge was dropped a month later.
