      More bills proposed to repeal gay marriage ban


      Minority Democrats in the Michigan House are joining their Senate colleagues in an attempt to repeal the state's ban against gay marriage.


      A measure announced Monday would amend the Michigan Constitution to remove a 2004 prohibition on same-sex marriage. The measure is unlikely to get the required two-thirds support in the Republican-led House and Senate to make the statewide ballot.


      Another bill would recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages in Michigan. The House measures are similar to legislation introduced in the Senate last month.


      The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule soon on a couple of gay marriage cases. One is a challenge to California's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.
