Gay Marriage Prohibition Bill Likely Dead

After a series of procedural and rules committee moves in the Wyoming Senate, it appears House Bill 74 has died this afternoon, Amy Richards reports.

The conference committee vote was 14-16.

Richards says a legislator has told her it would take an extraordinary procedural move tomorrow to revive the bill, which originally would have banned out of state gay marriages from being recognized in Wyoming. The legislator spoke off the record.

Senators Bill Landen (R-27) and John Hines (R-23) changed their votes for the bill after the conference committee changed the title of the bill.

The Wyoming Democratic Party is reporting via their Twitter feed that Senate President Jim Anderson (R-02) has said he will not appoint another conference committee on the bill. Without an additional conference, the bill is dead. The deadline for bills to be reported to the second house out of conference is noon Thursday.
