According to the Williamsburg Yorktown Daily, Virginian lawmakers failed to repeal a ban on gay marriage. Del. Scott Surovell, D-Fairfax, sponsored a House amendment resolution to re-define marriage. The current definition, “only a union between one man and one woman,” prohibits the state and local governments from creating or recognizing marriages, unions or similar relationships between couples of the same sex.
