DOVER, Dela. – The Delaware Senate voted 12-9 today to approve a marriage-equality bill, which was passed last month by the General Assembly.
Gov. Jack Markell, a Democrat, sign the bill into law just minutes after the vote. Weddings can begin in Delaware on July 1, 2013.
Before the vote, Senators and witnesses took both sides of the issue, although a majority of the speakers were in favor of the bill.
