(South Jordan-AP) -- The South Jordan City Council is the newest battleground for the gay marriage debate.

Mayor Kent Money has directed staff to draft a resolution to be voted on by the council on March 30th. The legislation would say that "marriage in South Jordan be recognized as only between one man and one woman."

Leaders of other cities have left it to others to decide, because they say that counties issue marriage licenses in Utah, not cities.

Gay rights advocates say the measure is unnecessary because Utah already has a law forbidding gay marriage.

A constitutional amendment banning them will be on the ballot in November.
