Building Off New York’s Success, Washington State May Push Marriage Equality Bill In 2012

Washington state Senator Ed Murray says that New York’s successful passage of marriage equality may build momentum for the state to pass a same-sex marriage bill in 2012. Murray and another openly-gay lawmaker, State Representative Jaime Pedersen, “are talking with leaders in the gay and lesbian community about whether to run what he terms a ‘marriage equality’ bill next January.”
