Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, issued the following statement regarding the governor's support of same-sex marriage in Washington:
"Today is a very important day in the lives of many gay and lesbian families in our state. The governor, in a very bold and courageous statement, endorsed equality in marriage for our families. This is going to help tremendously in our efforts to move this issue forward, so that people who love each other can have the full recognition that they deserve. That only comes with marriage. And the governor’s leadership is going to help us achieve that day, when our families do have marriage equality."
Murray discussed the issue with the Seattle Times and readers in a live online chat earlier today. You can read that here.
