DC Marriage Bill Expected to Pass, 400 Rally

Last night (Dec. 14) more than 400 supporters of marriage equality in the District of Columbia gathered at a rally held by DC Clergy for Marriage Equality, DC for Marriage, the Human Rights Campaign, the Campaign for All DC Families and other groups.

This morning (Dec. 15) the DC City Council will take a second vote, expected to pass by a wide margin, and send the legislation to Mayor Fenty’s desk, where he is expected to sign it swiftly. The bill then goes to Congress for review for 30 working days, after which is will be become law, barring opposition.
