A Washington-based group that pressed the General Assembly to approve a ban on gay marriage will try to find a way to get the proposed constitutional amendment on this year‘s ballot, even though that isn‘t supposed to be possible. State law says that proposed amendments to the Constitution must be approved twice with no change in language in order to go before voters. The marriage amendment approved by the General Assembly this year did not include a sentence that also banned same-sex civil unions, unlike the version passed in 2011. No lawsuits have been filed as of yet.
