Third Maryland GOP Lawmaker Announces Support for Marriage Equality

Jim Burroway

February 16th, 2012

Metro Weekly’s Chris Geidner breaks the news that Del. Wade Kach (R-Baltimore County) has just announced that he will support the Civil Marriage Protection Act, which will provide marriage equality in Maryland, when it comes to a vote in Maryland’s House of Delegate. Vote counters believe that his vote is the one vote needed to put marriage equality over the top in the lower house. Kach joins fellow Republicans, Sen. Allan Kittleman (R-Carroll, Howard counties) and Del. Bob Costa (R-Anne Arundel County), in supporting the bill.

The House is in recess until 5:30 p.m. this evening. When the session resumes tonight, the bill’s second reading is expected, during which amendments could be offered. A vote on the bill could come as early as tomorrow.

so if this one makes it can they vote on it also? dont know if i mentioned this here but i saw a comment awhile back on another site. it mentioned that in states where marraige will come up for a vote in november that there will likely be a repeat of prop 8. the reason given is that more black people will show up to vote and they vote against equality for gay people. im not sure if that is really right but it sounds interesting with some of these bills that may be voted on in november. any thoughts on this ?

I think Washington and Maine will uphold gay marriage, though Maryland will likely reject it.
