Yesterday, our G Philly colleague Josh Middleton was there as state representatives Brian Sims and Steve McCarter announced the proposal of the PA Marriage Equality act, a bill that would define marriage in our state as “a civil contract between two people who enter into matrimony.”
During the announcement, they spoke of how the bill would not only fulfill basic rights for all citizens, but would boost the state's economy.
This, of course, comes on the heels of the kerfluffle over same-sex marriages in PA's Montgomery County, and the ruling that declared same-sex marriages legal in New Jersey. Lots going on in our neck of the woods on this topic lately.
