Delaware House Committee Advances Marriage Equality

According to Equality Delaware, the Delaware House Administration Committee just voted 4-1 to advance marriage equality legislation to the full House. The legislation is expected to pass both chambers and Gov. Jack Markell (D) has committed to sign it into law. Marriage equality has the support of Delaware’s entire Congressional delegation, one of its largest employers, DuPont chemicals, and 54 percent of voters. The state easily passed civil unions in 2011.
