Rhode Island, USA: House Committee Vote on Marriage Equality Tuesday

Written by scott on January 18th, 2013

Rhode IslandRhode Island is the only New England state in the US that has not yet made gay marriage legal.

But that may change as the state’s House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a Tuesday (22 January) vote on a marriage equality measure that would allow gay and lesbian couples to marry in the geographically smallest US state.

The measure is expected to pass in committee where it would then go before the full House for a vote – possibly as soon as next week. While supporters of the bill, who include openly gay Democratic House Speaker Gordon Fox, are confident of achieving success in the House, the bill is expected to have a tougher time passing the Senate.
