State Level Marriage Equality Not Unconstitutional

190px-Rainbow_flag_and_blue_skies[1]A NSW parliament report has shown that implementing a same-sex marriage law at a state level is not unconstitutional.

The Australian Marriage Equality (AME) WA convenor, Brian Greig, has stated that the confirmation will propel the campaign to legislate marriage equality in WA.

“While a federal law for equal marriage is ideal, we cannot wait forever for the commonwealth to act and this is hampered by Tony Abbott’s refusal to allow the Liberals to have a conscience vote in Canberra”.

“In contrast, Premier Barnett has said he will allow a conscience vote for his party in WA, and so with Labor and Green support a Bill is most likely to pass here before we see any national reform”.

The national director for AME, Rodney Croome, is urging SA Liberals to allow a conscience vote on the issue.

“We call on the state Liberal Party to allow a conscience vote on state same-sex marriage bill now the NSW report has assuaged its concern about the constitutionality of such a bill [SIC]”.

“South Australia still has a unique opportunity to lead the nation to this important and urgent reform”.

Liberal leader, Steven Marshall, has stated that the Party will reconsider its position following the report.
