NEW: Senate Judiciary to Vote on Same-Sex Marriage Bills Tuesday

Friday, April 19, 2013

 

The Senate Committee on Judiciary announced it is scheduled to vote Tuesday on three pieces of legislation related to same sex marriage. 

The three pieces of legislation scheduled for consideration are:

• 2013-S-0038, sponsored by Senator Donna M. Nesselbush (D – Dist. 15, Pawtucket), to permit same sex marriage in the state and deem those who had entered into civil unions as married;

• 2013-S-708, sponsored by Senator Frank A. Ciccone, III (D – Dist. 7, Providence, North Providence), proposing a constitutional change to permit same sex marriage if the constitutional amendment is ratified by the voters; and

• 2013-S-5015A, sponsored by Representative Arthur Handy (D – Dist. 18, Cranston), the House version of Senator Nesselbush’s bill.

The Committee will meet at 3 p.m. in Room 313 of the State House on Tuesday.  According to the Committee, no public testimony will be taken on Tuesday, following a "lengthy public hearing on both Senate bills on March 21."
