Same-Sex Marriage Easily Clears The Senate

A landmark bill legalising same-sex marriage has cleared the Senate without any major changes.

Liberal Dean Smith's private bill will now be sent to parliament's lower house where it will be debated next week after the upper house voted 43-12 in favour of the legislation.

All proposed amendments, excluding technical tweaks, were voted down with moderate coalition MPs voting with Labor and the Greens to defeat the bulk of attempts by their conservative colleagues to change the bill.
