State Senate Bill Would Nullify Gay Marriages

Cheyenne, WY – Gay marriage is back on legislators' lists in the wyoming state legislature.
A recently introduced bill would allow Wyoming to void same-sex marriages granted by other states.
So far, Massachusetts is the only state that grants marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Some other states permit civil unions. But this proposed law pertains only to gay marriages.
Bill sponsor and State Senator Gerald Geis, of Worland, says some of his constituents asked him to tackle the subject.
Gay rights groups say the measure is unnecessary.
