Delaware House to Vote on Marriage Equality Today

DelawareDelaware's House is set to debate and vote on marriage equality today.

The legislation, HB75, was introduced two weeks ago by Delaware State Rep. Melanie George Smith (D-Bear). It was advanced last week by the Delaware House Administration Committee in a 4-1 vote. Governor Jack Markell has promised to sign a bill if it hits his desk.

Bear believes the bill has the votes to pass: "I’m confident that we have a majority of Delaware representatives — so over 21 out of the 41 — that will do the right thing and vote to support equality in Delaware."

Stay tuned for updates on Towleroad as this develops.
