Opposition MKs propose US-inspired gay marriage bills

Yesh Atid and Zionist Union pushed civil marriage bills on Sunday, hoping that the government will be inspired by Friday’s US Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage to do the same.

On Sunday, MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) proposed her own civil unions bill, based on one she drafted as justice minister in the last government, which was blocked because of coalition politics.

A nearly-identical bill by MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) allowing civil unions for any couple will be brought to the Ministerial Committee for Legislation next Sunday.
