Great news from Honolulu:
Lawmakers will gather at the State Capitol Monday morning for a special session on several bills, but the most highly anticipated is a controversial proposal to legalize same-sex marriage.
Senate leadership says the bill is expected to pass 21-4, but the real question has always been if the same-sex marriage bill will have the 26 votes it needs to pass in the House.
Hawaii News Now surveyed lawmakers last week. 27 Representatives tell us they plan to vote yes.
It’s getting hard to keep up with all the states that are moving toward passing marriage equality, isn’t it? (I wonder if they will bring Leinaala Fruean out of the woodwork?)
