DE: Governor to Sign Civil Unions Bill on April 11th
Delaware Governor Jack Markell will sign a civil unions bill into law on Wednesday, May 11.

Markell will sign the landmark legislation approved by lawmakers last month at the World Cafe Live at the Queen located on Market Street in Wilmington. A representative from the venue said a room had yet to be assigned for the signing ceremony but its most likely space accommodates 150 people and larger rooms are also available. The ceremony begins at 6PM.

Delaware lawmakers made quick work of the bill, going from introduction to passage in the Legislature in just over 3 weeks. By contrast, similar recent victories in Hawaii and Illinois took years to accomplish. And New Jersey adopted civil unions only after a mandate from the state's highest court.
