Washington Governor signs marriage equality bill

Chris Gregoire

Gov. Chris Gregoire signed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington, making it the seventh state to offer marriage equality!

Gregoire said, “We’re here today to make history in this great state…As governor now for over seven years, this is a very proud moment. Most surely, it is a proud day in the history of the legislature…it is a day as historians will mark as am milestone for equal rights in this state. We stood for equality and we did it together. I’m proud of who and what we are as a state. I’m proud that our same-sex couples will no longer be treated as separate, but equal. They will be equal in the great state of Washington. I’m proud that the children in our schools and neighborhoods will no longer have to wonder why their loving parents are considered somewhat different than other loving parents.”
