Spokane council tables gay marriage resolution

SPOKANE -- After hours of public testimony and debate, the Spokane City Council has tabled a resolution supporting the state's new gay marriage law.
The Spokesman-Review reported the council has voted 4-3 to table the resolution indefinitely.
Councilman Mike Fagan requested the council table the issue, pointing to a council rule that says they should not pass any ordinance or resolution on a subject not directly related to local affairs or business.
If forced to take a vote on the resolution, council members agree it likely would be approved in a 5-2 vote. But two supporters of gay marriage, Mike Allen and Steve Salvatori, say the council shouldn't vote on it.
Salvatori said council members aren't likely to affect a person's vote on gay marriage.
