Gay Civil Rights Bill: Passing on Friday?
A note from Ed Murray:
Dear Friends: As of right now, we expect the Senate to vote on HB 2661 this Friday morning between 10:00 AM and noon. Should the Senate approve the bill, the House will need to vote once more to concur with the Senate’s version the bill; the House is prepared to do so immediately following Senate action.
The galleries of the Senate and House are open to the public and I would like to invite you to come down for what I hope will be a historic day. If you cannot join us in Olympia, you can watch the proceedings on TVW (either on cable TV or at www.tvw.org).
Following the House’s vote, we will be holding a legislative press conference with community leaders present. You are also invited to attend this event, as there will be room for the public to attend. The location will be finalized by Friday.
Also, a number of community groups are planning celebratory events all around the state for Friday evening. Stay tuned.
