Alabama lawmakers are poised to pass a bill that will allow same-sex couples to marry and get probate filings from the state.
The measure was introduced in the state House on Wednesday and has already passed the state Senate.
The legislation would allow same sex couples to legally get probates from the probate court in the home state, according to Alabama Public Radio.
The bill is part of the Alabama Legislative Black Caucus’ 2017 agenda, which includes bills to allow people to file for unemployment benefits, expand Medicaid and expand the state’s high school graduation rate.
Alabama’s Republican-led legislature has faced some criticism for its lack of LGBT rights, with a 2017 report finding that the state ranks just 23 out of the 50 states.
The NAACP has also criticized the state for its treatment of gay and transgender people.
