Governor Shares Draft Marriage Bill
News Release from Office of the Governor August 28, 2013
Gov. Neil Abercrombie today provided state legislators and news media a marriage bill drafted by the state Attorney General. The bill is based on Senate Bill 1369, introduced in the 2013 regular session, and was drafted in collaboration with legislators, staff and stakeholders.
“We are doing our due diligence to remain open, transparent and accessible on this important issue of equality,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “Over the coming days, I along with the Lt. Governor, Attorney General and staff will be available to legislative caucuses. Next week, it is my hope to meet with House and Senate leadership to discuss the possibility of a special session.”
