HALLELUJAH!

My District 10 Washington State Senator, Mary Margaret Haugen, has just stated that she will support the marriage equality legislation now before the House and Senate. She had been a holdout for a long time and has now become the deciding vote in a tight Senate debate. I haven't yet heard her testimony, but it is extremely exciting to be part of this historical campaign.

Your post is the first I heard of this. I am so excited. Thank you indeed!

I was in the Seattle City Council Chambers yesterday when they passed a resolution supporting the state to support Marriage equality. I did not know that cities could do that, or did that. All of them sounded hopeful that change was coming, for once.

Christine, I hadn't heard of City Council supporting this yet, so that's additional wonderful news!
