Idaho Moves Closer to Constitutional Vote to Define Marriage as Union between Man and Woman

The Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee Friday morning voted 5-4 in favor of sending a bill to the floor that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Proponents claim that Idaho’s current statutory law, which bans gay marriage, may still allow judges at some point to re-define marriage.  Source:  Thanh Tan, kbci2-tv, kbcitv.com.
