Committee vote on NJ’s marriage bill scheduled for next week
January 18, 2012
New Jersey lawmakers are wasting to time in making the Garden State the next to end marriage discrimination! Next Tuesday (01/24) at 11am, New Jersey's Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing and vote on S.1, the bill to extend marriage to gay and lesbian couples.
The marriage bill was introduced last week with the full support of legislative leaders in the Assembly and Senate, most notably Senate President Steve Sweeney who abstained from voting on the marriage bill in 2009.
If you're in New Jersey, head over to Trenton on Tuesday! Garden State Equality is asking marriage supporters to arrive at the Statehouse- 125 West State Street in Trenton- as early as possible. Freedom to Marry staff will be on hand for the hearing and will be keeping you up to date on Facebook and Twitter.
