State Rep. Mike Colona introduces proposal to revisit same-sex marriage in Missouri

Missouri state Rep. Mike Colona

Missouri state Rep. Mike Colona has filed a proposal that would ask voters to revisit the state's current ban on marriage equality.

Via Ozarks First:

Representative Mike Colona (D-St. Louis) has filed HJR 85, a proposed constitutional amendment that would ask voters to add language saying that a marriage may exist between a man and a woman and a same-sex couple.

71 percent of Missouri voters approved Constitutional Amendment 2 in 2004 that said to be valid and recognized in Missouri, “a marriage shall exist only between a man and a woman.”

Colona, who is openly gay, says he's not sure the proposal will clear the legislature but feels it's time to address the issue while two different court cases are being considered on the subject of same-sex marriage.
