It’s mid May and I haven’t gotten any notifications of any hearings for marriage equality bills here in RI. The divorce equality bill was heard and held yet AGAIN last month. But nothing on marriage equality.
I recall a conversation I had with my state senator, Paul Jabour almost two months ago. He told me that the bills for equality were being delayed by their sponsor. I wonder what’s going on.
RI is at the crux of marriage equality. We have an openly gay house speaker, and I’d think a nice big “FUCK YOU” to outgoing Governor Carcieri would be to pass a marriage equality bill with a big veto proof majority. I know that we’re very close to that in the house at the moment.
But whither the bill and hearings???
