DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state House has narrowly approved a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Delaware.
The House voted 23-to-18 Tuesday for the bill, which now goes to the Senate.
Democratic Gov. Jack Markell has promised to sign the bill if it passes the legislature, where it was introduced earlier this month, a little more than a year after Delaware began recognizing same-sex civil unions.
Under the proposal, no new civil unions would be performed after July 1. Existing civil unions would be converted to marriages.
