Vote On Marriage Equality Delayed In Maryland Again

Written by

Once again, the vote on a bill allowing gay marriage in Maryland was delayed by the Maryland House of Delegates committee.

According to Washington Post, "the legislation was thrown off track Tuesday when two delegates who had pledged support for the bill skipped a planned vote by the House Judiciary Committee.

Del. Jill Carter (D-Baltimore) has since said she is prepared to vote for the bill, but aides said she was out sick Thursday.

Del. Tiffany T. Alston (D-Prince George's) told reporters she is considering an amendment that would offer civil unions as an alternative."

A new test to pass the legislation could happen Friday. This legislation needs 12 votes to go on the next step.
