15 Dec Update: New Jersey Same-Sex Marriage Vote Postponed
The New Jersey Senate was scheduled to vote last Thursday on legislation that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state, but the vote was postponed. According to legislative sources, the vote was postponed by the bill’s sponsor due to lack of support.
The bill now moves to the Assembly for approval before moving back to the Senate. Same-sex marriage advocates are still promising to get the bill approved and to Gov. Corzine before he leaves office on January 19.
Polls indicate, however, that the majority of New Jersey citizens are opposed to same-sex marriage and deem it low on the list of priorities the government should be focused on.
