One Iowa, the state's larges gay-rights organization, is urging members to contact their legislators in order to counter a move by conservative lawmakers to push a ban on same-sex marriage
The ban, an idea that even the most ardent supporters admit is a long shot, could not be brought to the floor of either chamber for a vote without using some sort of legislative procedural maneuver. This is because Democratic leadership in both the House and Senate have promised to block every attempt to discuss a ban, let alone allow it to come up for a vote.
According to One Iowa, gay marriage opponents are trying to circumvent leadership in the House, where Democrats have a smaller advantage.
