Survey: 20 Md. Senators for Marriage Equality

Maryland_senatex390

As the Maryland legislature prepares to consider the marriage equality bill, 20 senators publicly support the measure. The bill needs 24 votes to pass in the chamber.

According to a Washington Postsurvey, of the 47 senators, 18 have signed on as cosponsors of the bill, and two others support it. Six senators, all Democrats, are undecided.

The two non-cosponsors in support of the bill include Sen. Allan Kittleman, a Republican who announced his vote earlier this week the day after his caucus voted to oppose the bill. Kittleman said that he might be the only GOP senator to vote for the bill.

A hearing on the bill is scheduled for Tuesday in the senate judicial proceedings committee. The bill is expected to make it from the committee to the floor for a full vote.
