Radio Iowa: McCoy: Gay marriage good for the economy

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

Senator Matt McCoy, a Democrat from Des Moines who is openly gay, has
introduced a bill which would rewrite Iowa laws to omit words like
"husband" or "wife" and insert "spouse" if the Iowa Supreme Court
upholds a district court judge's decision and gay marriage becomes
legal in Iowa. It's Senate File 353. I just interviewed McCoy at the
statehouse, and he concluded with this statement: "I think it's a
good bill and it's something that shouldn't be controversial. We
should just be thinking about how this is all going to work once Iowa
becomes a Mecca for gay marriage." I immediately asked a follow-up
question: "Will Iowa become a Mecca for gay marriage?" "Well, that's
what Chuck Hurley says," McCoy replied, adding, "I think it'd be good
for the economy."
