After getting his Civil Unions legislation through the Assembly last night Simon Corbell has announced a more ambitious push just so we’re all clear where he’s coming from:
“Marriage equality is an issue that deserves a collaborative approach and I am pleased that my Tasmanian counter-part, Attorney General, Hon. Brian Wightman MP, has agreed to proceed with discussions that would see our two progressive governments work together to further state and territory-based legislation to promote same-sex marriage.
“The Tasmanian Government has announced its support for legislation to grant marriage equality for same-sex couples in Tasmania within the current term of Government. Following my discussions with Mr Wightman we have agreed to share information that may assist the other jurisdiction to develop laws that provide for same-sex marriage.”
