Tas gay marriage vote to pressure ALP

The Tasmanian parliament's historic vote to support gay marriage will put pressure on the federal government to change the law, proponents say.

The Tasmanian House of Assembly on Wednesday became the first in Australia to formally support same-sex marriage.

A motion calling on the federal government to amend the Marriage Act, was passed with the support of minority government partners Labor and the Greens."
