Yesterday’s Senate session was historic – the passage of S1, the Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption bill.
Due to some technical glitches, the audio feed from the Senate was not of high quality, so it’s best to listen to this video using headphones. My apologies for the sub-par audio, but you’ll be watching one of the most significant events in the history of the New Jersey legislature.
Even if you don’t view the entire 35 minutes, fast forward to 34:07 to see the vote and especially the jubilant reaction of Garden State Equality’s Steven Goldstein.
Time marks for the senators’ remarks are:
Senate President Sweeney – 00:00
Senate Majority Leader Weinberg – 06:01
Senator Ray Lesniak – 18:39
Senator Gerald Cardinale – 20:15
Senator Richard Codey – 26:01
Senator Barbara Buono – 29:32
Senator Jennifer Beck – 32:30
