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