Lincoln Chafee signed a marriage equality bill into law Thursday following its passage in the state House. State Rep. Frank Ferri, a longtime advocate of same-sex marriage, spoke shortly before the vote was held.

Frank Ferri: "Thank you, Governor. Thank you, Speaker. Rhode Island is open for equality. I recommend we pass this bill."

The new Rhode Island law takes effect August 1. Delaware is the next state expected to approve marriage equality when lawmakers take it up next week.
