Lawmakers propose gay marriage bill

Three Greater Philadelphia state senators last week talked up bills that would allow same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania and also ban landlord and employer discrimination against gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender persons. Speaking at a City Hall news conference, state Sens. Daylin Leach, Mike Stack and Larry Farnese urged Republican leaders to support, not block, Senate Bill 719, which would legalize same-sex marriage, and Senate Bill 300, which would ban landlord and employer discrimination against LGBT Pennsylvanians.
