BREAKING: DC Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

The DC City Council just voted 11-2 to legalize same-sex marriage.

The council had previously voted in favor of this measure; today’s vote was the final hurdle that legislation needed to clear in order to pass.

Now the bill heads to the desk of Mayor Adrian Fenty, who has already said he will sign it into law.

After that there will be a 30-day Congressional review period–once that has passed, the measure will officially become law.

Our nation’s capital joins NH, CT, VT, MA, and IA in legalizing same-sex marriage.
