Legendary rock icon and New Jersey native, Bruce Springsteen, released a statement on his website endorsing a same-sex marriage bill.
“Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I’ve been following the progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being considered in Trenton. I’ve long believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Governor Corzine when he writes that ‘The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is — a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law.’”
On Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the marriage bill by a 7-to-6 vote. The legislation could move to the a full Senate hearing later this week. Thanks for the support, Bruce. You rock!
