Opponents say Kansas marriage amendment is too broad
http://www.advocate.com/new_news.asp?ID=14947&sd=01/28/...

Opponents contend that a proposed Kansas state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage could eliminate health care and other benefits for unmarried couples, gay and straight, but some legislators are skeptical.

The house federal and state affairs committee continued hearings Wednesday on the proposed amendment, which also prohibits civil unions for gay couples and declares that the state recognizes only traditionally married couples as entitled to "rights and incidents" of marriage.
