The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear appeals on U.S. District Court rulings allowing gay marriage, which effectively made it legal in certain states. Wyoming is in one of the federal districts affected by the rulings. Some states, like Colorado, began issuing marriage certificates to gay couples. Governor Matt Mead says the federal ruling does not apply to Wyoming, since gay marriage is banned by state law, and he asked the Attorney General to continue to oppose efforts to overturn the law.
Do you agree with Governor Mead’s decision to continue fighting gay marriage, or should the federal court ruling allow gay marriage in Wyoming?
Keep fighting gay marriage
Allow gay marriage based on the federal court ruling
Some members of Congress and the Pentagon are considering banning tobacco sales on military bases and ships. The Pentagon says tobacco related health care costs it close to $2 billion a year. Opponents say the members of the military are sacrificing enough, and should not be forced to give up use of a legal product.
