House minority leader Scott Pelath said Friday he will offer an amendment on behalf of House Democrats to strip the civil unions clause from the resolution.
The House elections committee approved the measure on a party-line vote this week. But concerns have persisted about the second part of the measure, which bans civil unions and could bar employer benefits for same-sex couples.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long said Friday the resolution would go to the Senate Judiciary Committee if it clears the House.
