Asay, Altebaumer Agree with Marriage Protection Act
Laramie, WY – The Republican candidates for Wyoming's lone seat in Congress almost all agree on the Marriage Protection Act. The U-S House approved the legislature that would keep federal courts from reviewing parts of a law that says states do not have to recognize same-sex marriages from other states. Incumbent Representative Barbara Cutin voted in favor of the act and opponents Bruce Asay and Jim Altebaumer say they would have too. Altebaumer says marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Republican Cale Case says he wouldn't have supported the act because it tramples the constitution by taking power from the courts. Fellow Republican Bruce Asay disagrees with Case's conclusion and also supports the law. The Marriage Protection Act faces an uncertain future because the U-S Senate probably won't vote on the issue this session.
