According to Reuters, marriage equality was approved in a unanimous vote, although a number of lawmakers abstained. The United Commissions of Constitutional Points and Governance, Human Rights Equity, Gender and Family prepared the marriage equality bill, Vallarta Daily reports.
The bill was unanimously voted on with 23 votes in favour, zero against and 17 abstentions. Sinaloa’s passing of the marriage equality bill would be the first fully passed piece of same-sex marriage legislation this year.
The vote would result in the reformation of article 40 and 165 of the Family Code of the State of Sinaloa. This code outlines the legal union between two people and will now include same-sex relations.
