West Virginia Anti Gay Measure Dies

Measure To Advance Discrimination Into W. Va Constitution Fails

State seal of West Virginia

(Charleston, West Virginia) A push to advance an Amendment to the state's Constitution creating a marriage as only between 1 man and 1 woman has failed.

In Monday's vote, Republicans tried to push the bill directly to the floor but failed 67/30 along party lines.

Earlier in the month, a conservative bigot Family Policy Council began its smear campaign that accused 2 lawmakers (Webster and Fleischauer) of blocking a vote on the measure.

A law defining marriage as between 1 man and 1 woman has been on the books in West Virginia since 2000 but supporters of the Amendment fear the law could be challenged in court.

Send a message to Family Policy Council and tell them to do the right thing and protect all West Virginia families - Email Family Policy Council
