Hawaii's congressional delegation expressed support for marriage equality Friday in a joint statement released by the statewide coalition Hawaii United for Marriage. Sens. Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz, along with Reps. Colleen Hanabusa and Tulsi Gabbard, all of whom are Democrats, urged the state Legislature to pass a marriage equality bill. "It's time for Hawaii to stand with the growing number of states across the country that offer full marriage equality to all of its citizens," said Hanabusa. A recent poll commissioned by Equality Hawaii Foundation found that the majority of people in the state support marriage equality.
