Hawaii’s marriage deadline

Timothy Kincaid

February 12th, 2013

Today the leadership of Hawaii’s legislature will decide whether to kill marriage equality for this legislative session. If a hearing isn’t scheduled before the Judiciary Committee of the Senate or House, the marriage bill will die.

Supporters are hoping that they can find procedural ways around the deadline, but if leadership opposes the bill (or fears that it doesn’t have sufficient support) then procedure isn’t the problem.

How ironic that it may well turn out marriage came closer to a reality this year in Wyoming than Hawaii.

Too bad, but until DOMA is repealed passing same sex marriage won’t make much of a practical difference to people in states that already have good civil unions laws.

Rep. Karl Rhoads, chair of committee would not introduce it. Dead for this year.
