Australia MapThe Green Party has introduced a new bill to recognize same sex weddings performed in other countries.

Gay Star News reports:

Australian Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young has announced she will introduce a bill to legally recognize same-sex marriages performed in overseas jurisdictions in reaction to same-sex couples in England and Wales being able to marry from tomorrow. Hanson-Young has also proposed an inquiry to examine the affect that the legalization of same-sex marriage has had in those jurisdictions where it is legal which would then draft a report for the parliament.

It’s a crack in the dam. Will it pass?
