An Arkansas legislative committee on Friday rejected a non-binding resolution calling on the state Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling striking down the state's ban on gay marriage.

The Arkansas Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza's ruling knocking down a 10-year-old voter-approved constitutional amendment and a 1997 law prohibiting gay couples from marrying. But the weddings of gay and lesbian couples already taking place came to a halt when the high court said that Piazza had neglected to address a separate state law that prohibits county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

Weddings resumed on Thursday after Piazza issued an order striking down all state laws preventing same-sex couples from marrying.

According to KHBS/KHOG, the Arkansas Legislative Council, which includes members of both legislative chambers, rejected the resolution, which called on justices to overturn Piazza's ruling and invalidate the hundreds of marriage licenses issued to gay couples.

The resolution was introduced by Republican Senator Jason Rapert, who last week called for Piazza's removal from the bench.
