Scenes from a Victory: Washington Marriage Equality

Check out these photos that are coming in from members of HRC’s field team, which have been on the ground, working with the Washington United for Marriage coalition to ensure passage of the marriage equality bill.

As you already know, the Senate passed  the measure on Wednesday by a bipartisan vote of 28-21!

Momentum is on our side, but the work is not yet done – the bill awaits final House approval, which could come as early as next week. Gov. Chris Gregoire would have five business days to sign it into law, which she has indicated she will do.  Opponents wishing to challenge the new law would have until June to collect 120,557 valid signatures – the amount required to place a referendum on the November 2012 ballot.
