Rhode Island marriage vote may come within weeks

Providence Journal:

House Speaker Gordon D. Fox, an openly gay Providence Democrat, says he’s “doing everything in his power” to move the question forward.

He acknowledged that a vote in the House Judiciary Committee could come as soon as March 10, the day that the Senate has scheduled a hearing on the Senate version of the legislation.

“That’s a potential,” Fox said. “The potential’s there but nothing has been set in stone at this point.”

I’ve only just watched the first of five DVD’s of the house hearing. I couldn’t stay that evening to testify but damn it I’m gonna do so at the Senate hearing.

I’m not so sure we are going to see marriage equality here in RI this year.

I will be shocked if Rhode Island doesn’t legalize it this year. It’s over the first (and largest) hurdle, and the votes are clearly there, if nothing else that the House and Senate have 87% and 76% Democratic majorities.
