Nevada Lawmakers To Vote On Same-Sex Marriage

(Las Vegas, NV)  — The Nevada State Senate is scheduled to vote today on a resolution that allows gay marriage in Nevada.

SJR13, which was approved along party lines Friday, would repeal language in the state Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. It also adds that the state “shall recognize marriages and issue marriage licenses, regardless of gender.”

Religious groups would be given the option of not performing the ceremonies.

If approved by the Legislature, lawmakers would have to pass it again in 2015 before voters have a say in 2016.
