Will History Be Made Today ?

Last night Governor Jim Douglas made good on his threat and vetoed a bill that would have granted full marriage equality in Vermont.

Today at 10:00, the legislature will meet to try to override his veto. If they can do it, Vermont will be come the first state to grant marriage equality without a court order.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE !!!!

It is done. Vemont's House overrides Governor Douglas veto 100-49.


I'll have to buy another bottle of champagne tonight.

I hope they do not veto this!
I really hope NJ changes civil unions to marriage some day soon, it would really be nice.

Keep us posted!
