After being approved by a Senate committee this week, Delaware’s marriage equality bill goes before the full Senate on Tuesday.
The Washington Blade reports that seven Senators are in the definite “no” column, and nine Senators in the “yes” column, leaving five votes up in the air:
State Sen. Catherine Cloutier (R-Heatherbrooke) remains undecided. State Sens. Bruce Ennis (D-Smyrna,) Bethany Hall-Long (D-Middletown,) Robert Marshall (D-Wilmington) and Robert Venables (D-Laurel) did not return the Blade’s requests for comment. Hall-Long and Marshall voted for the civil unions bill that Gov. Jack Markell signed into law in 2011, while Ennis and Venables opposed it.
So that’s 9 for, 7 against, and 5 undecided.
If you live in Delaware, please pick up the phone and start calling. Let’s make Delaware state number 11.
