Pody speaks about marriage protection bill
Court fight expected over legislation
While State Representative Mark Pody and Senator Mae Beavers filed legislation on Sept. 17 calling for the state to uphold the constitutional amendment adopted by voters in 2006 specifying that only a marriage between a man and a woman can be legally recognized in the state, Pody, while addressing the assembly at the DeKalb County GOP picnic Saturday, said the matter will likely be challenged in court. Pody said the possibility would not deter him from fighting for the measure, however. "I want to compliment the Democrats," Pody told those gathered at Greenbrook Park for the event.
