A Wyoming legislative committee is set to consider a proposed constitutional amendment that would specify the state wouldn't recognise same-sex marriages performed in other states.

The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday is set to consider a resolution that calls for allowing Wyoming voters to decide whether to change the state Constitution to specify the state would only recognise marriages between one man and one woman. The Wyoming Senate has already approved the measure.

Proponents of the measure say Wyoming needs to clarify its law because of same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Opponents say such proposals are an attack on gay rights.
