New South Wales cross-party work for marriage

From SMH

NSW is one step closer to a vote on legalising same-sex marriage, MPs from across the political spectrum giving official notice of new legislation.
A cross-party working group of MPs from the Coalition, Labor, the Greens and an independent have been working on a bill that would allow gay and lesbian couples to marry in this state, after the failure of three federal same-sex marriage bills earlier this year.
Coalition and Labor MPs will be allowed a conscience vote on the bill when it comes before Parliament next year.

What’s interesting here is that marriage is a Federal issue but, given the Commonwealth’s failure to move forward, the State’s are starting to look at legislating for equal marriage on the basis that the Commonwealth has not covered the field. People of goodwill are trying to find a way.
