On the heels of today’s news that the 9th Circuit will rule on the constitutionality of Prop 8 tomorrow, we have some more great news out of Washington state. From the AP:
A House committee approved a measure to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state, setting the stage for final passage this week.
The House Judiciary committee advanced the measure on a 7-5 vote Monday after a public hearing. The bill could be up for a vote on the House floor as early as Wednesday. The full Senate passed the measure on a 28-21 vote last Wednesday. Once passed by the House, the bill goes to Gov. Chris Gregoire for her signature.
Looks like this is going to be a very big week for marriage equality. Check back here at P8TT for full coverage of tomorrow’s 9th Circuit decision and later in the week for the House vote!
