Maryland: Senate Judicial committee passes marriage equality

The Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee voted on Tuesday in favor of a gay marriage bill, moving Maryland along the path toward legalizing same-sex nuptials.

The committee voted 7 to 4 in favor of the bill – supported by Governor Martin O’Malley – and the full Senate was expected to vote later in the week.

The bill was approved last week by the House of Delegates.
