ateast 300x216 Rhode Island Senate Votes 26 12 In Favor Of Marriage EqualityON TO THE GOVERNOR!

“Love wins!,” said my married gay former Rhode Islander friend who was watching the hearing for me.

Update: Actually, it’s not directly on to the governor, as Think Progress explains, as the Senate version was amended a hair and will have to be revoted on by the House, BUT that is not cause for alarm, because the House was the easy part of this. So basically, ON TO THE GOVERNOR! with a quick stop at the House early next week.
