The Hawaii Senate will meet today for the third and final vote on the same-sex marriage bill that advanced out of committee Monday by a 5-2 vote. The bill is expected, but not guaranteed, to pass today.
The Hawaii House will be taking up the bill tomorrow morning, where chances of passage are even slimmer, but still quite possible. Democratic Governor Neil Abercrombie supports the bill and will sign it into law, if both chambers pass it. That would make Hawaii the 15th state to extend marriage to same-sex couples.
You can watch the debate and vote live, here. The Senate is scheduled to convene at 5:30 PM Eastern time, which is 11:30 AM local time in Hawaii.
