House Speaker Brian Bosma announced Tuesday he is reassigning the proposed same sex marriage ban amendment to a new committee. The move is designed to ensure the amendment reaches the House floor.
The proposed same sex marriage ban amendment known as HJR-3 was initially assigned to the House Judiciary Committee. But after a more than three hour long hearing last Monday, committee chairman Greg Steuerwald didn’t call for a vote.
Speaker Brian Bosma says Steuerwald told him he doubts the amendment would have passed the committee and advanced to the House floor.
