2013 Senate Bill 405: Repeal same-sex marriage ban
  1. Introduced by Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (D) on June 4, 2013, to revise details of state statutes related to marriage so they would conform with the proposal in Senate Joint Resolution W to repeal the 2008 state constitutional amendment establishing that “the union of one man and one woman in marriage shall be the only agreement recognized as a marriage or similar union for any purpose”.
    • Referred to the Senate Government Operations Committee on June 4, 2013.
