Hawaii inching towards same sex marriage law

4:33 pm on 11 November 2013

The Hawaii House of Representatives has passed an amended version of the state's same sex marriage bill.

After hours of procedural delays, which involved motion after motion introduced by Representatives opposed to the legislation, it was finally passed by 30 votes to 19.

Because of the amendments the bill now needs to go back to the Senate for endorsement.
