Historic day in Washington - and the United States for that matter - Gay Marriage has been passed by the Washington State House! It has already been passed by the senate last week, so now it heads to Gov. Gregoire who has vowed to sign it.
Here's a statement from Gov. Gregoire:
"This is truly a historic day in Washington state, and one where I couldn’t be more proud. With today’s vote, we tell the nation that Washington state will no longer deny our citizens the opportunity to marry the person they love. We tell every child of same-sex couples that their family is every bit as equal and important as all other families in our state. And we take a major step toward completing a long and important journey to end discrimination based on sexual orientation.
I commend our House members and thank Rep. Jamie Pedersen for sponsoring this bill. Our legislators showed courage, respect, and professionalism.
I look forward to signing this piece of legislation, and putting into law an end to an era of discrimination."
