Marriage Equality "A Top Priority" for NJ Legislature

The leadership of both houses of New Jersey's legislature announced this afternoon in Trenton that marriage-quality bills will be introduced in both houses and considered "a top priority" for this session.  Senate President Steve Sweeney, who calls abstaining from the vote in 2010 the "biggest mistake" of his legislative career, is now championing the bill.  Episcopal Bishop of Newark, the Right Rev. Mark Beckwith, has campaigned actively in favor of marriage equality in New Jersey.  On Saturday, the OASIS is co-sponsor of an event organized by Lambda Legal called Marriage Equality: Take the Power.
