DC Same-Sex Marriage Bill Introduced

A bill to permit same-sex couples to marry in the District of Columbia was introduced in the District Council today. Same-sex marriages from other states and countries are currently recognized in the Nation’s Capital.

D.C. Councilman David Catania, one of two openly gay council members, introduced the new legislation. A vote by the 13 member District Council is expected in December.
