RHODE ISLAND: House Committee Unanimously Passes Marriage Bill

UPDATE: Rhode Islanders United reacts via press release.
This is the first time a General Assembly committee has voted to send a marriage equality bill to the floor. In 2001, then State Representative David Cicilline moved passage in the House Judiciary Committee on a marriage equality bill sponsored by Representative Michael Pisaturo. He was the only affirmative vote, and the legislation was defeated.
That 2001 vote was 19-1 against.
