State Senator proposes ending Michigan's ban on same-sex marriage

Lead in text: 
Michigan voters approved amendment to state Constitution in 2004 that bans same-sex marriage
MACKINAC ISLAND - A bill to remove Michigan's ban on same sex marriage was introduced in the state Senate Wednesday, although there's little chance it will get a hearing in the Republican-controlled Legislature. Sen. Rebekah Warren, D-Ann Arbor, introduced the bill after a recent poll showed that 57% of Michigan voters support same sex marriage.
