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.
