Iowa Panel Backs Putting Gay Marriage Ban To Vote

January 24, 2011, 3:40 PM

DES MOINES, IA - A House subcommittee has approved a resolution that would begin the long process of putting a gay
marriage ban before voters.

A subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee voted 2-1 in favor of the resolution Monday, and the full committee is expected to follow suit later in the day. House Majority Leader Linda Upmeyer says the full House could take up the resolution with a few days, but next week is more likely.

Republicans control the House on a 60-40 margin, and top leaders have predicted approval. Senate leaders promise to block the proposal.

More than 200 people jammed the committee room to make their case to lawmakers, with both sides cheering and clapping. Lawmakers elected in consecutive elections must approve the measure before it could go before voters.
