New Jersey Gay Marriage Bill Advances

Written by 

In New Jersey, the bill to legalize the gay marriage has just passed the first stage.

New Jersey senate judiciary committee voted for the law by 8 to 4. The bill will be presented to the Senate floor next month.

From now on, Governor Chris Christie wants people of New Jersey decide if marriage equality must be legalized or not. Some month ago, he affirmed he will veto the law and now, he wants a referendum. It's kind of difficult to know what he really wants, don't you think?

According to the Star-Ledger, he said: "I think this is not an issue that should rest solely in my hands, or the hands of the Senate President or the Speaker or the other 118 members of the Legislature."

"Let's let the people of New Jersey decide what is right for the state."

What thinks the population of New Jersey then?

A Quinnipiac poll showed recently that 52% of New Jersey voters support gay marriage for the first time.

Let's hope Christie won't change his mind again.
