Missouri Religious Objection Bill fails in Committe

Efforts to make the issue of same sex marriage an election year issue in Missouri suffers a huge setback Wednesday.
A proposed constitutional amendment protecting citizens who do not want to deal with same sex couples, failed in a tie vote 6-6.
Supporters said the measure would protect Missourians who have deeply help religious beliefs against same sex marriages, from being punished for refusing to deal with same sex couples.
Many Kansas Coty business leaders, and other business groups across the state thought the measure, if approved, would trigger an economic backlash against the state.
With just two a d a half weeks left in the session, it is unlikely there is enough time or will by lawmakers to try and revive the bill
