Jackson county commissioners are voting Tuesday night on the definition of marriage.
Commissioner Rick Baxter wants the county to approve a resolution endorsing marriage as a union only between a man and a woman. It's an idea currently recognized by Michigan state law.
Baxter says his resolution also supports the creation of a state constitutional amendment that allows only men and woman to join in marriage unions.
Opponents say the county government should not be involved in defining a couple's marital status.
Tonight, the commissioners will vote whether or not to accept the resolution. The meeting takes place at 7 p.m. at the Jackson County Tower building at 120 W. Michigan Avenue in Jackson.
