Thursday, April 25, 2013

 

The Rhode Island Senate in a landmark vote passed gay marriage legislation in a 26 - 12 vote sending the bill back to the House for a confirmation vote.

Once through the House, the bill will be presented to Governor Lincoln Chafee who has been openly supportive of the legislation.

"The vote happened and we prevailed after many many years of trying to make it happen," said Senator Donna Nesslebush (D-Pawtucket). "I've never had a prouder moment as a person or as a senator."
