Kansas State Representative Against Same-Sex Marriage

Ron Highland, the State Representative for Wamego, Kansas, introduced two bills against same-sex marriage. As outlined they would require that the state of Kansas no longer recognize same-sex marriage. The other bill would try to establish and enforce a priority for straight marriage.

Fortunately the current Governor of Kansas, Democrat Laura Kelly, has shown continued support for the LGBT community by signing into law and enacting protections against discrimination for LGBT state workers. It’s possible that due to the recent passing of such protections, the GOP Representatives are trying to give pushback with these pro-discrimination bills.
