D.C. Lawmakers Move Forward With Gay Marriage

Published November 11, 2009

WASHINGTON (AP) — D.C. lawmakers have moved forward with a proposed same-sex marriage bill.

On Tuesday, city council members from the Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary approved the bill 4-1, and it now goes to the full council.

The committee held two public hearings on the bill after it was introduced in early October and heard from more than 250 people who supported or opposed the bill.

The full, 13-member council is expected to vote on the bill in December.
