Gay marriage opponents push to let voters decide

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Opponents of Iowa's gay marriage law are promising to push hard during the 2010 legislative session for a vote on a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex unions.

Pro-marriage supporters say they plan to be at the state Capitol on January 12th when Gov. Chet Culver delivers his Condition of the State address to a joint session of the General Assembly with Iowa Supreme Court justices present.

Officials with the pro marriage group say it will be the first time that all three branches of state government are together since a unanimous Supreme Court ruling cleared the way for same-sex marriages in Iowa.
