VIRGINIA'S TWO OPENLY GAY LEGISLATORS FILE BILLS TO REPEAL STATUTORY BANS ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

By ANDREW CAIN, Richmond Times-Dispatch (Metered Paywall - 10 articles a month)

Two openly gay members of Virginia’s legislature have introduced bills to repeal now-moot sections of the state constitution and state law that prohibit same-sex marriage.

Sickles, D-Fairfax, want to take off of the books.
