Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder on Thursday sidestepped the debate over whether same-sex marriage should be legalized in Michigan. In an interview with the Associated Press during a Mackinac Island conference, Snyder declined to take a stand on a bill introduced this week in the state Senate that would repeal a ban on gay marriage in the Michigan Constitution. Michigan Senate Joint Resolution W, introduced by Sentor Rebekah Warren (D-Washtenaw), would amend the Michigan Constitution to remove the 2004 prohibition on same-sex marriage.
