Washington State on the Cusp of Marriage Equality

February 1, 2012

Washington state is poised to implement marriage equality laws that would legalize same sex marriage. Reuters reports that the state Senate is expected to pass a marriage equality bill tonight. Passage in the state House of Representatives is “virtually assured” and “Governor Christine Gregoire, a Democrat in her final year in office, announced last month she was backing the gay marriage bill.”

Microsoft, Nike, Starbucks and other local corporate powerhouses have supported the legislation.
