Act now to protect marriage


Committees of both the Australian Senate and the House of Representatives are examining proposed bills that if enacted and passed into law, would change the definition of marriage. 

The Hon. Greg Donnelly, MLC in the NSW Parliament, said it is likely that one or more of these bills will be debated and voted on in the second half of this year.

He is strongly encouraging people to participate in both inquiries by making a submission to the Senate and participating in an online survey for the House of Representatives.
