Equality Closer in Maryland
As I previously reported, on Wednesday the Maryland Senate gave initial approval to a marriage equality bill. Yesterday, the Senate approved the bill by a vote of 22-25. Now it goes to the House of Delegates where it is expected to pass. If so, it will go to the desk of Governor O'Malley who is expected to sign it into law. Maryland would join Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Iowa in providing full rights to all citizens. Rhode Island is also coming along and may very well be lucky number 7. I also believe New York will come around sooner rather than later and equality will return to California.
