NV: Marriage equality takes step forward – passes in state Assembly 27-14

Nevada took another step forward today in repealing it’s constitutional ban on marriage equality and making the freedom to marry possible for thousands of Nevadans.

The bill to repeal the ban passed in the state Assembly by a vote of 27-14.  Only one Republican legislator voted for the bill.

The state Senate had passed the bill, SJR13, earlier this year by a vote of 12-9.

SJR13 will have to be approved by the 2015 Legislature, and then voters in 2016 to take effect.
