Marriage Redefinition Clears House Committee in Delaware

 

With the committee vote passing, the bill will soon make its way to the House floor.

From Delaware.Newszap:

House Bill 75, legislation for marriage equality, sailed through the House Administration Committee by a 4-1 vote Wednesday after two hours of impassioned discussion.

The bill, effective July 1, would convert all civil unions to marriages within one year. Same-sex civil unions would no longer be performed after that day.

[...]

Nicole Theis, president of Delaware Family Policy Council, said she and her constituents knew two years ago as they debated civil unions, same-sex marriage would be the agenda and could go further.

It is unclear when the bill will be presented to the full body for a vote, but Delaware citizens should not hesitate to contact their legislators today!
