State Senate Approves Bill That Would Drop Traditional Definition Of Marriage As ‘Between A Man And Woman’
The bill was sent to the Assembly on a 25-10 vote, with only Republicans in opposition. Two Republicans, Anthony Cannella of Ceres and Ted Gaines of Roseville, voted in favor.
The East Los Angeles County Clerk’s office refused marriage licenses to several same-sex couples who requested them today. The attempt was part of the 10th Annual Marriage Counter Actions, a nationwide effort tied to Valentine’s Day to win support for the repeal of Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.
