Final Vote on French Marriage Equality Law April 23

The French legislature will complete its work on the pending marriage equality legislation on April 23rd when the French national assembly completes its work on the bill following its 179 to 157  passage in the French Senate last week. There's no doubt the measure it will pass, since the National Assembly had already passed the most important part of the bill back on February 12 by a vote of 3299 to 229.

The tweet from Bruno Le Roux can be translated to say:
We will begin the examination of the text of "Marriage For All" Wednesday, continue it on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for a vote on Tuesday April 23rd.
France will likely become the 13th country in the world to have enacted marriage equality nationwide when the bill becomes law. Uruguay became the 12th country to so just last week! There's a strong possibility that New Zealand may beat out France for the 13th slot by passing their marriage equality bill this week.

The times they are a changin'-fast!
