SJR 13 One Step Closer to Final Passage (for This Year)

We've talked about it before. This has been one amazing spring on the equality front here in Nevada. SJR 13 is moving. And last week, we saw another round of powerful testimony in favor.

But in the end, today's results were pretty predictable. The Assembly Legislative Operations & Elections Committee passed SJR 13 on a party line vote. It now moves to the Assembly floor for its final vote of the session.

And from there, it must be passed again next session (2015) before it can go to voters in 2016. And if approved by voters in 2016, marriage equality will finally be the law of the land here in Nevada...

Unless the court(s) intervene soon.
