CHEYENNE -- The Wyoming Senate voted today in favor of a proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit recognition of same-sex marriages from outside the state of Wyoming.

The vote was 20-10, the minimum two-thirds majority needed for constitutional amendments.

As it goes to the House, Senate Joint Resolution 5 also contains language to allow a future Legislature to recognize civil unions.

If the bill passes in the House, the amendment will be placed on the November 2012 general election ballot.
