Pennsylvania committee sends gay marriage ban to full Senate

The Pennsylvania Senate Appropriations committee passed a marriage and civil unions ban bill. The measure, which would enshrine the ban in the state's constitution, now goes to the full Senate (29 Rs, 21 Ds).

Approps passed it 18-8. Six of 10 Democrats (60%) voted "no"; 14 of 16 Republicans (88%) voted "yes". Remember who your friends are.

The bill is here; the Approps roll call is here; party affiliations are here.
