Delaware’s Governor Markell is encouraging gay activists to help him get the marriage equality bill passed through the state legislature this year. Delaware Online reports:
Gov. Jack Markell told about 200 proponents of same-sex marriage he would sign legislation supporting marriage equality if it came across his desk. “It can happen here in Delaware and it can happen this year,” Markell told the audience tonight. “But it will only happen if you do your part to make it happen.”
The bill is expected to be filed in the next week.
