Maryland Senate Advances Marriage Equality for Floor Vote

Jim Burroway

February 21st, 2012

Maryland’s Senate Judiciary Committee voted today to send a bill legalizing same-sex marriages to the full Senate, setting up a vote which may take place as early as tomorrow. The same bill narrowly passed the Maryland House of Delegates last Friday. The bill’s supporters believe that it will have an easier time getting passed in the Senate.

Assuming the Senate passes the bill and it goes to Gov. Martin O’Malley’s promised signature, it is widely expected that opponents will succeed in collecting enough signatures for the ballot referendum on the measure.
