WA Governor Gregoire signs marriage equality into law

Broadcast with live streaming over the Internet, Washington Governor Christine Gregoire today signed marriage equality into law. The swift and efficient move by both the governor and the state legislature makes Washington the seventh state, plus the District of Columbia, where full marriage equality is realized.

Washington State legislators Ed Murray and Jamie Peterson were thanked for being the main sponsors of the marriage equality bills.

"The sky will fall rhetoric is simply not true," she said. "The truth is respectful, welcoming societies make stronger economies." She went on to thank Microsoft and other corporations who call Washington home.

"Isn't it time to support stronger families and make Washington state stronger?" asked Governor Gregoire. "We in this state stand proudly for equality."

Washington Governor, Christine Gregoire
