Yesterday, the Hawaii Senate passed a same-sex marriage bill by a huge 20-4 margin. That came after hundred of citizens spoke for and against the bill during a whopping 12 hours of testimony on Monday.
Today, the Hawaii House begins the process, and has 14 hours of testimony scheduled.
The vote, which is not yet scheduled, will be very close — it could come down to one member of the House.
And come back to The New Civil Rights Movement later today and through next week for regular updates.
Will Hawaii become the 15th state to offer same-sex marriage? We’ll know soon!
