Debate of Maryland's marriage equality bill is scheduled to begin Wednesday at 10 am. The bill has the required 24 votes to pass.

The Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act passed the senate's judicial proceedings committee last Thursday by a vote of 7 to 4. The bill included three amendments, including one on protecting religious institutions that is expected to be the subject of prolonged debate in the full senate this week.

The Wonk Room offers audio of the introduction.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has promised to sign the marriage equality bill, which is expected to pass the house of delegates.
