Senate Votes to Repeal 1913 Law

According to the Boston Globe, the Massachusetts Senate has voted to repeal the 1913 law (MGL c.207, s.11-12) that prohibits out of state same-sex couples from marrying here if their marriage is prohibited by their home state. The House is expected to vote on the measure this week, and Governor Deval Patrick has promised to sign the bill repealing the law if it reaches his desk.
