Baltimore County Sen. James Brochin (D) said his position changed after he listened to the seven-hour hearing. He said he felt "appalled and disgusted" by the comments made by opponents of the same-sex marriage bill.

The bill needs 24 votes to pass on the floor.

In the past, the strong influence of socially conservative groups like the Catholic Church and some African-American congregations has stopped the state from moving forward on gay marriage.
