WEINBERG STATEMENT ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGISLATION

TRENTON – Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen), prime sponsor of the same-sex marriage bill (S1967), today issued the following statement:

“As the prime sponsor of the Marriage Equality Act, I am urging our current Majority Leader to honor the commitment he made to me to move this important civil rights bill forward. We have the ability in the legislature to talk about this bill and address the economic crisis at the same time. I received commitments from the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee as well as from Majority Leader Sweeney that they would allow this bill to move forward. It will be a disappointment to so many in the grassroots of our party as well as to me personally if this commitment is not honored.”
