Maryland Senate Judicial Committee passes marriage equality

Legislation that would legalize same-sex marriages in Maryland was approved Thursday afternoon by a Senate committee, easily clearing the first hurdle needed for passage this year by the General Assembly.

The 7-to-4 vote by the Judicial Proceedings Committee sends the bill the Senate floor, where a lengthy and emotional debate is expected next week on the most high-profile social issue facing lawmakers during their 90-day session.

The bill appears to have the bare majority for passage in the full Senate. The Majority Leader (who opposes marriage equality but agreed not to stand in its way) predicts that the bill will pass.
