Catholics for Equality is proud to announce that The Seattle Times reports that the Washington State House tonight passed Catholic Governor Christine Gregoire's state-wide marriage equality bill by a huge margin of 55 to 43!

The bill, which has already passed the State Senate is now on its way to Governor Gregoire's desk, awaiting her signature.

Congratulations to Governor Gregorie for this amazing victory for equality. Thank you also to the Catholics throughout Washington state who stepped up to demand equality from your lawmakers. But most importantly tonight, thank you to every Catholic Member of the State Legislature who followed Gov. Gregoire's leadership and did the right thing by passing this important billl for all Catholic families!
