A nice win in the PA Senate Judiciary Committee

Kudos to Pennsylvania for stepping away from discrimination with today's vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee to table the proposed “Marrriage Amendment” introduced by Senator Eichelberger.  I was rather excited when I got the news … thanks to the magic of social media, it hit Twitter, Facebook, my inbox and my cell phone within 60 seconds.

Technically, the legislation still exists (just like the gays!), but it is unlikely to be brough up for another committee vote which means it is effectively dead. 

Committee members who voted for the motion to table SB 707 included Republicans Pat Browne, Jane Earll, and Mary Jo White and Democrats Daylin Leach, Lisa Boscola, Wayne Fontana, Michael Stack, and Jay Costa.

Things got pretty heated yesterday when blogger John Morgan from the Pennsylvania Progressive offered to out hypocrites.

As one commenter put it, six legislators voted against tabling the amendment.  Will John need to make good on his promise?

  • I'm glad to see that Jay Costa voted to table the bill. I heard he was on the fence, so I'm hoping the letter I sent may have been one of many that swayed him. Shows how important it can be to write a simple letter to your legislator.
    Thanks, Sue, for making all that contact information available. I hope this dog of a bill is dead forever.

  • George — so glad you sent in your letter …. savor the moment of victory! Kudos to you for reaching out. Every letter does matter.
    Great day to be gay!
