Senator Wayne Allard is wasting no time in trying to take advantage of the Republican election victory.
He reintroduced a proposed constitutional amendment today that would ban gay marriage. He says he is not trying to change anyone's lifestyle, but warns courts will legalize gay marriage without the amendment.
Officials with Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs praised the move. Chairman James Dobson says the stakes in the battle over marriage have never been higher.
The liberal group ProgressNow-dot-Org says Allard should find more important things to work on. They say Colorado ranks 48th when it comes to the amount of federal dollars it receives.
