Moments ago, the Wyoming House Corporations Committee rejected HB 169, a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, with a close 5-4 vote. Testimony against the bill included threats that gays are pedophiles and that same-sex activity damages colons. Hopes were high that there was bipartisan support for the legislation to pass. Now that the marriage bill has failed, the committee is continuing to consider HB 168, a partner bill that would create domestic partnerships for same-sex couples.
The domestic partnership bill has passed with a 7-2 vote!
