Australia: Marriage Bill Comes Back to Life in Tasmania

Written by scott on October 5th, 2013

Australia MapAfter conservatives took control of the national government in Australia, the stare by state movement for marriage equality seems to be once again gathering steam.

SDGLN reports:

Tasmanian’s Upper House is set to be the focus of national attention when it considers for a second time whether the island state can go it alone in legalizing same-sex marriage. Independent MLC Ruth Forrest says she will bring on debate to resuscitate the same-sex marriage bill which failed last year, eight votes to six. Ms Forrest says she will make the move when Parliament resumes in just under a fortnight, in light of new information.

Tasmania follows the ACT, which is also considering a marriage equality bill.
