Renewed Push For Same-Sex Marriage In Maryland

Play associated audio

Several groups are expected to band together in support of same-sex marriage starting today with an announcement at Baltimore City Hall. Among them are Equality Maryland, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Service Employees International Union, and the Human Rights Campaign.

Supporters in Maryland have renewed their push following the state of New York's passing of a bill that legalized same-sex marriages last month.

During this year's legislative session in Maryland, same-sex marriage was narrowly approved by the State Senate, where it was expected to struggle. But the bill was stopped in the House, where it had been expected to pass.

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has said he will sign any bill that legalizes same-sex marriage should it reach his desk.
