D.C. Marriage Measure Set for Mayor’s Signature

The Washington Post
May 5, 2009

An overwhelming majority on the D.C. Council voted today to recognize gay couples' marriages performed in other states. The measure, approved by a vote 12 to 1, now goes to Mayor Arian M. Fenty (D), a supporter of marriage equality. If Fenty signs it, the District will put marriage directly before the Congress. Under Home Rule, the District's laws are subject to a 30-day congressional review period. [Link]
