The Washington State Senate has passed a bill providing equality in marriage yesterday.  The bill now moves to the State House of Representatives next week, where it is expected to pass.  The governor has already said she will sign the bill into law when presented to her.  Washington State stands now to become the seventh state and eighth major jurisdiction with marriage equality in its laws, joining Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and the District of Columbia.
