Rhode Island House Passes Gay Marriage Bill–Goes To Senate

It passed 51-19 and now moves to the Rhode Island Senate, where the fate is uncertain.

The vote was personal to Ken Fish, who showed up at the Statehouse early to get a seat in the viewing gallery. The 70-year-old Warwick resident says he and his partner of 25 years have long waited for Rhode Island to pass gay marriage. He called Thursday’s vote “history in the making.”

Rhode Island is now the only state in New England that doesn’t allow same-sex couples to wed.
