Senate Passes Bill To Allow Same-Sex Marriage In Maryland! Legalization Is Coming!!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitik

This is FANTASTIC news!

Last month, proponents of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maryland said they believed that they had enough support to make it happen during their upcoming legislative session.

Maryland's Democratic governor Martin O'Malley had "publicly stated that he would sign a marriage bill into law" if they could gain the support.

Looks like everything's going according to plan, because Maryland Senate voted 25-21 in favor of a bill that grants "same-sex couples full marriage rights in Maryland."

The bill will now move to the House of Delegates for debate, and then it will be signed by O'Malley, assuming everything goes off without a hitch.

You can do this, Maryland! You're SO close!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!!
