Delaware Senate Approved Civil Unions

Written by 


The Delaware senate has just passed a law allowing gay and lesbian couples to enter into civil unions. It still needs the approval of the House.

Apparently, the law passed by a vote of 13 against 6. The civil unions and the marriages from other states could be recognized in Delaware as civil unions too.

Lisa Goodman, president of Equality Delaware, expressed confidence about the prospects for the bill in the house.

“We are expecting to be heard in a timely fashion in the house,” said Goodman in a telephone interview with The Advocate. “We’re not expecting to be heard in June.”

“We have overwhelming support for civil unions,” said Goodman. “We have families who need protections right now. We decided that our highest goal was to get them these protections.”
