Delaware, USA: Senate Executive Committee To Hear Marriage Equality Bill Today

Written by scott on May 1st, 2013

DelawareAs Rhode Island prepares to wrap up debate on its marriage quality bill, Delaware’s is just heating up in the Senate. Joe.My.God reports:

The Delaware Senate Executive Committee will hear its marriage equality bill today at 2:30pm at a special session where it’s the only item on the agenda. The bill is expected to pass 4-2 in committee, but faces a tight vote in the full chamber. Last week we got some good news when one state Senator flipped into the “yes” column, but the latest head count shows the bill only squeaking by 11-10 in the full chamber, with three Democrats opposed.

If you live in Delaware, now would be a great time to contact your Senator to encourage him or her to support the marriage quality bill. It’s by no means a done deal, yet.
