Effort to remove ban on same-sex marriage in Virginia Constitution clears Senate

Gay marriage has been the law of the land for years thanks to a Supreme Court decision. But the Virginia Constitution still bans same-sex marriage.

Michael Pope reports an effort to change that took a step forward Monday. 

The Senate also approved a constitutional amendment to allow the automatic restoration of voting rights for formerly convicted felons. But it also faces an uphill battle in the House of Delegates.
