For the second time this year, a resolution against same-sex marriage was shot down by members of the Rapides Parish Police Jury on Monday.
The resolution, proposed by Juror Jamie Floyd, was actually stopped before it could even be discussed at Monday's committee meetings.
Juror Ollie Overton objected to discussion of the resolution, which forced a vote of the jury.
Jurors voted 6-3 not to revisit the issue that's come before the body twice before: most recently in March when it was defeated and once in October 2003 when jurors voted to support the Federal Marriage Amendment.
"Item number five has failed again," proclaimed jury Vice President Joe Bishop following the vote.
