Today there is more news on our coverage of the marriage equality debate in Massachusetts. We've reported on the debate in the Massachusetts state government to repeal a law that forbids out-of-state gay couples from marrying. A bill repealing the residency requirement passed the state Senate, and tomorrow will be debated in the state House of Representatives.
The Boston Globe reports today that the bill doing away with the outdated residency requirement, if passed by the House, will go to Gov. Deval Patrick [pictured, upper right, with daughter]. Governor Patrick has vowed to sign the bill once it reaches him. As you may remember, recently his daughter, Katherine, came out to him - though Patrick has been a supporter of GLBT equality well before that.
Stay tuned for updates on how the debate in the House progresses.
