A bill that takes the first step toward repeal of Nevada’s ban on gay marriage took another step today. RGJ.com reports:
SRJ13 was approved Thursday by the Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections. Next up is a full vote by the lower house, where passage is expected. It was previously approved by the Senate. The measure repeals language in the Nevada Constitution that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. The Protection of Marriage Act was ratified by voters in 2002.
If all goes well, Nevada could recognize marriage equality by 2015.
