Vermont Senate Votes for Gay Marriage Bill
Just in from the Vermont Senate: The Senate voted for gay marriage, 26-4. The House vote will be later this week…it’s going to be closer, but how close is key.
“Next, it goes to a House committee, and then the full House, which also has a Democratic majority and is likely to pass the bill. The governor, Republican Jim Douglas, has said he’s against gay marriage – but hasn’t signaled whether he’d sign or veto the bill.” —365gay.com
If Vermont lawmakers approve same-sex marriage, the state will be the first in the country to legalize gay nuptials through legislative means and not through litigation in court. The people of Vermont have a small say in what their legislators do, make your voice heard! Now is your chance Vermont!
It’s not too late. Keep the pressure up!
