Nevada Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections approved a proposed constitutional amendment that would repeal the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
The original proposal sought only to repeal language in the state constitution that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. But a late amendment adopted by the committee today adds that the state “shall recognize marriages and issue marriage licenses, regardless of gender.”
“We felt it would be cleaner to both eliminate the current prohibition and make it clear Nevada does not discriminate in any way,” said Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, who introduced the bill.
But it is a long way off if and when it makes it to the voters. We’re talking 2016! By then they gays should have succeeded in their world domination plan.
