Ohio Representative Jim Jordan says he'll back a bill that would outlaw gay marriage in the District of Columbia.

Jordan chairs the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC), which includes 175 members.

“I think RSC will push for it, and I'm certainly strongly for it,” Jordan told The Hill. “I don't know if we've made a decision if I'll do it or let another member do it, but I'm 100 percent for it.”

Last week, opponents of gay marriage in the nation's capital said they would turn to Congress after a recent Supreme Court loss.

The court rejected without comment an appeal from gay marriage foes hoping to put the city's gay marriage law up for a vote. The court's decision effectively upholds a lower court's ruling that said such a question would violate the city's Human Rights Act (HRA) that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation.

"With a pro-marriage majority in the new Congress we will explore a number of avenues to force the District to fulfill their constitutional responsibility to voters,” Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, said in a statement. “As the four Court of Appeal justices who dissented in this case made clear, the District of Columbia owes it to the voters to allow them to decide the critical issue of marriage which has existed since before there was a District of Columbia.”

Jordan attempted to block last year's start of the gay marriage law, but his legislation garnered little interest.

Any attempt to roll back gay marriage in the District would face a steep incline in the Democrat-controlled Senate and a near certain veto from President Obama.
