Texas House Committee Passes Bill Opposing Same-Sex Marriage

The vote comes despite a U.S. Supreme Court hearing taking place next week to rule on whether gay marriage bans are constitutional.
Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Bobby Blanchard, a reporter for The Texas Tribune, about the committee vote.
