Marriage moves to full Senate vote!

December 7, 2009

New Jersey’s Senate Judiciary Committee just approved 7-6 to send the marriage equality bill to a vote in the full Senate! That’s a more narrow margin than I’d like to see, but dozens of residents testified for the afternoon and most of the evening, and I’d like to thank everyone who gave witness to the reasons why we all deserve the same rights.

It’s unfortunate that my own senator, Senator Jennifer Beck (R-12), voted no on the bill, and she’ll be hearing from me about it. I encourage every marriage equality supporter in New Jersey to contact your state senator and let them know they need to support this bill when it comes before them. Leave them a message tonight, and call them every day until equality has passed!
