In 2005, Texas passed a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as one-man and one-woman. At the time of the amendment, three-quarters of Texans opposed same-sex marriage.
The bill was introduced in the House by Houston Democrat Rep. Garnet Coleman. El Paso Democratic Senator Jose Rodriguez introduced the companion bill in the Senate. This marked the first time the repeal legislation has been introduced into both chamber of the Texas legislature.
Opponents of same-sex marriage believe the bills will not pass either chamber during this session. The voter-approved ban in 2005 by a large margin gives the traditional marriage crowd confidence moving into the future.
