With less than 24 hours notice, the New Mexico House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee added a proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage to its agenda for today. The request for the addition came from the amendment’s sponsor, state Rep. David Chavez (R), who apparently thinks discussing a condemnation of same-sex couples’ relationships is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day. The committee convenes at 1:30 MST (3:30 EST).
