CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A Laramie lawmaker is pushing legislation to change Wyoming state law to allow same-sex marriages.
The bill would specify only that marriage is a civil contract between two people, without any mention of their sex.
Connolly is a lesbian and has pushed gay rights legislation for years. The House last year defeated bills she supported that would have permitted same-sex marriages and domestic partnerships.
Connolly’s same-sex marriage bill will require a two-thirds vote in the House for introduction in the current budget session.
Connolly says she wants the state to be on the right side of history on the issue of equal rights for gays and lesbians.
