Williams Institute releases studies on economic impact of marriage equality in Vermont and D.C.

Extending marriage to same-sex couples would boost the District of Columbia’s economy by over $52.2 million over three years, which would generate increases in local government tax and fee revenues by $5.4 million and create approximately 700 new jobs, according to a new study by the Williams Institute at UCLA Law School.

Another study finds that newly legal same-sex marriage in Vermont will generate $31 million in new spending over the next three years. This new spending will generate 700 new jobs and an additional $3.3 million in state tax revenues.
