R.I. House to Hold Marriage Equality Hearing

R.I. House to Hold Marriage Equality Hearing


The Rhode Island house judiciary committee will hold an early-session hearing on the marriage equality bill this Wednesday.

Rhode Island is one of three East Coast states including New York and Maryland that could pass marriage equality this year. Governors in all three states have pledged to sign the bills into law and the conditions in the state legislatures appear favorable.

Rhode Island house speaker Gordon Fox, who is gay, is a co-sponsor of the marriage equality bill.

The Providence Journal reports that the hearing is scheduled for Wednesday after the house finishes the day's other business.
