Maryland Delegate Tiffany T. Alston (D-Prince George's), '02, voted last week in favor of the same-sex marriage bill in the Maryland House of Delegates. Approval of the bill by the Maryland Senate and Gov. Martin O'Malley would make Maryland the eighth state to legalize the same-sex unions.

Alston had opposed the bill but reversed her stance when members of the House accepted her amendment. It would keep the law from going into effect until any litigation related to a potential voters’ referendum on the measure is processed. On the House floor, Alston pledged to work with Republicans on the referendum.

"What I know is that right now as a state, it’s time for us to move beyond the issue,” she said.
