Marriage Equality Legislation Unveiled Today

Apr 11, 2013 -- 4:51pm

Lawmakers, officials and advocates were in Freedom Plaza in Wilmington today to unveil legislation that would establish civil marriage equality for all Delaware families.  This would allow same-sex couples to marry.  House Bill 75 would give same-sex married couples the same rights, protections, responsibilities and obligations as opposite-sex married people under Delaware law.  HB 75 has over 20 sponsors and has been assigned to the House Administration Committee which is scheduled to hold a hearing on the measure Wednesday afternoon.  If passed in the General Assembly, the bill would become effective on July 1 and Delaware will become the 10th state to establish marriage equality.
