California legislature approves California Marriage Recognition and Family Protection Act

09/09/09 Equality California press release / 09/11/09 Gay Marriage Watch:

Governor Schwarzenneger will now have opportunity to sign or veto legislation on the status of same-sex marriages licensed out-of-state. Same-sex couples married before Prop. 8's adoption would have a right to state recognition of their marriages, whether or not they married in California. For out-of-state same-sex couples married after Prop. 8's adoption, they would have all the rights and benefits of domestic partnerships, including heightened protection under the state constitution.
