USA: After Rhode Island, Who’s Next for Marriage Equality?

Written by scott on April 29th, 2013

Gay WeddingNow that Rhode Island is on the cusp of legalizing gay marriage, which other states could be next? LGBTQ Nation reports:

At least six states are actively considering same-sex marriage legislation, three of which could see passage this year.

Delaware: The state’s House approved a bill last week legalizing same-sex marriage on a 23-18 vote. The bill now moves to the Senate. The measure has the support of Democratic Gov. Jack Markell. Recent polling finds a majority of Delaware voters support legalizing same-sex marriage. Delaware approved same-sex civil unions last year.

Illinois: The state’s Senate approved a marriage equality bill on Valentine’s Day. Supporters in the House say they’re still a few votes short but hope a vote is held before the General Assembly adjourns this spring.

Wanna place bets on which one gets there first? I think it will be Delaware…
